KBM Affilips supplies a complete range of alloys, and one such product offered by KBM Affilips is the iron-zirconium,or ferro-zirconium, (FeZr) master alloy that is used in the production of stainless steels, special steels and superalloys for solid solution strengthening, precipitation hardening, etc.
FeZr Master Alloys
The table below lists the type of FeZr master alloy supplied by KBM Affilips:
||Lumps of defined size
||80% Zr balance Fe
The ferro-zirconium 80% master alloy is employed in the ferrous metal industry. Zirconium is a strong grain refiner and denitrifier, a powerful deoxidizer and also acts as an excellent sulfide shape controller. Appropriate additions of zirconium enhance impact resistance, yield strength and the hardenability of steels.
In addition, the alloy can be utilized as a zirconium additive and serves as a beneficial trace element in cobalt and nickel-based super alloys wherein iron does not have a detrimental influence.
Applications of FeZr Master Alloys
- FeZr serves as a grain refiner in steel and cast iron
- FeZr is used in carbide formation, desulphurisation, deoxidation, nitrogen scavenging
