Composition of NiCa6

Calcium 6
Nickel Balance


Nickel Calcium 6% is useful for final deoxidation, sulfide inclusion shape control, and desulfurization. Its addition improves the melt fluidity and enhances the machinability. These characteristics facilitate the hot working of cast steel ingots. NiCa also increases the resistance to stress fracture and corrosion.

KBM Affilips supplies nickel/iron/cobalt based additives in lump form for the iron, steel and super alloy industry. The company produces lumps of defined size by crushing and the lump shape is generally specific to the alloy to be produced.

Applications of NiCa

NiCa is mainly utilized for desulfurization and deoxidation of Ni-based alloys, stainless and heat resistant alloys, and low alloyed steel.
