Lamet® nodulariser (ladle grades)
In addition to the conventional magnesium/ mischmetal containing nodularisers, Elkem has a range of materials designed specifically to give greater shrinkage reduction in ductile irons. These contain lanthanum as the only source of rare-earth and have the tradename Lamet® nodulariser.
Lamet is, as with all MgFeSi alloys, based on 45-50% Si bearing ferrosilicon and contains levels of lanthanum, calcium and aluminium which can be varied to suit your process.
Benefits of Lamet® nodulariser include:
- Minimised shrinkage
- Increased nodule count and nodularity
- Low chill tendency
- Reduced costs
- More consistent casting quality
