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™ product 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
