MetalMin’s Alloys

MetalMin’s unique shipping arrangements means it can provide cost-effective, smaller baskets of raw materials

Silicon Alloys

Ferrosilicon is a major additive in the production of alloyed, stainless and carbon steel. Ferrosilicon is used as a deoxidant, and can improve the final quality of the steel.

We supply Ferro Silicon to the following specifications:

  • Standard Grade Si 75% Min Al 1.5% max
  • Low Ca Si 75% Min Al 1.5% Max Ca 0.25% max
  • Low Al Si 75% Min Al 0.1% max C 0.15% max P 0.03% max S 0.02% max
  • High Purity Si 75% min Al 0.04% max C 0.013% max P 0.015% max S 0.01% max
  • Standard Sizing 0 x 3 mm 3 x 10 mm 10 x 80 mm
  • Packaging bulk bags to customers required weight or smaller bags for man handling.
  • Shrink-wrapping and pallatisation
  • Shipments can be made by vessel container or truck from our plants in Spain France South Africa and Venezuela

We are confident that we can satisfy your unique Silicon Alloy requirements. Just contact us to discuss them.

DID YOU KNOW: Ferrosilicon has been used by the military to quickly produce hydrogen for balloons since World War One


Manganese Alloys

High-carbon ferro manganese is an essential part of making steel, as it is used for desulphurising and deoxidizing, and is also used directly as a component itself. Manganese alloys increase the elasticity, hardness and wear-resistance of steel.

Silico manganese has similar qualities to high-carbon ferro manganese, but the additional silicon increases its deoxydisation.

We supply Manganese Alloys to the following specifications:

  min max max max max
  Mn C Si P S
High Carbon 75 7 1 0.2 0.3
Medium Carbon 79 1 1 0.18 0.03
Low Carbon 82 0.5 1 0.18  

 

  • Sizing 0 x 5 mm 5 x 10 mm 10 x 50 mm 20 x 80 mm
  • Packaging bulk bags to customers required weight or smaller bags for man handling.
  • Shrink-wrapping and pallatisation
  • Shipments can be made by vessel container or truck from our plants in Spain and Venezuela
  min max max max max

DID YOU KNOW: The 30,000-year-old cave paintings in Gargas, south-west France, contain manganese as pigments. Manganese compounds were also used by Egyptian and Roman glassmakers, to either remove colour from glass or add colour to it

Chromium Alloys

Chromium is an extremely versatile element and its alloys find a wide variety of uses in applications in the steel and alloy, chemical and refractory industries. High carbon ferro chrome is used in the steel industry and enhances hardenability and resistance to corrosion and oxidation.

We supply Carbon Ferro Chrome to the following specifications:

  • Specification Cr 64% Min 9% max Si 1.5% max
  • Standard Sizing 0 x 5 mm 5 x 10 mm 10 x 50 mm 10 x 80 mm 10 x 150 mm
  • Packing 1 mt bulk bags can be shrink wrapped and on pallets
  • Shipment can be made via container packed or bulk or by truck packed or bulk.
  • Shipments are made from our warehouse facilities in Lipaja Latvia or Rotterdam Holland
  • Regular weekly ferry sailings to Europe from Latvia

We are confident that we can satisfy your unique Chromium Alloy requirements. Just contact us to discuss them.

DID YOU KNOW: The 2000-year-old bronze tips of weapons found at the Terracotta Army near Xi’an, China showed no sign of corrosion, because the bronze was coated with chromium
