Si-NINE silicon powders

Metallurgical silicon is selected, crushed and milled to silicon powders.  Different purities and sizes are offered according to customer requirements and application needs.

General

  • Superior to aluminium with regard to gas release during green castable body production when using a suitable binder.
  • Superior to aluminium in an acid slags
  • Superior corrosion resistance, both in water and at elevated pH, because of the formation of silica coating
  • Silicon reacts under reducing atmosphere with carbon and produces so-called B-SiC bond which contributes to improvement of the mechanical strength and the abrasion resistance under oxidation. 

Application

Antioxidants in

  •  Magnesia carbon bricks
  •  Alumina magnesia carbon bricks
  •  Carbon containing castables. 

Packing

The product is available in 25 kg small bags and 1000 kg big bags. Please contact our sales representative for more details. 

Storage conditions
