In the global market the requirements for steel quality are increasing continuously. One of the most important parameters is the cleanliness, which describes the number and size of nonmetallic inclusions in the material.
The cored wire CalciPro®, based on Calcium Carbide, is applied in secondary metallurgy to improve the cleanliness. It provides calcium, which modifies the existing oxide and sulfide inclusions in the steel melt and improves castability. The formation, control and effect of nonmetallic inclusions in steel will be topic of the 10th International Conference on Clean Steel (18-20 September 2018, Budapest). AlzChem will be participating with a booth presenting CalciPro®.
We are looking forward to fruitful technical discussions on calcium treatment.
