Elkem Foundry Products highlights Tenbloc® inserts and Topseed® conditioner at IFEX India 2019

India, 8 January 2019: From 18 until 20 January Elkem Foundry Products will be present at IFEX 2019 in Delhi, India. There, we will highlight two of its most recent products, Tenbloc® inserts and Topseed® conditioner.

IFEX has over the years emerged as the most important platform for the foundry industry of the Indian Sub-Continent. IFEX, with its rotational policy to organise the fair in different zones of India (North, South, East & West) on a pre-defined cycle, helps its exhibitors to reach their potential customers from all over the country. 

Elkem Foundry Products will highlight two new products which have been recently added to the portfolio. One of the products is Tenbloc®, an in-mould insert which provides consistent, reliable and cost-effective inoculation for ductile and grey irons. 

Visitors can also find out more about the new additions in the Topseed® conditioner family, which are designed to enhance the MgFeSi nodularisation process. The Topseed® conditioner range is based on a high density FeSi containing a balanced amount of active elements, calcium, barium and aluminium. These act as a deoxidant when added on top of the MgFeSi and also add nuclei to counter the negative effect of magnesium on nucleation. Even a small addition of Topseed® will delay the onset of the reaction and provide measurable consistent improvements in the Mg recovery and metallurgical quality of the iron.

We look forward to welcoming you at IFEX in 2019, at our stand D14, where our sales people and technical staff are available for all your questions.
