Ferroalloy

Ferroalloy

Ferroalloy refers to various alloys of iron with a high proportion of one or more other element, manganese or silicon for example. It is used in the production of steels and alloys as a raw material.

The main ferroalloys are:
*FeMn - ferromanganese
*FeCr - ferrochromium
*FeMg - ferromagnesium
*FeMo - ferromolybdenum - min. 60% Mo, max. 1% Si, max. 0.5% Cu
*FeNi - ferronickel
*FeTi - ferrotitanium - 10..30-65..75% Ti, max. 5-6.5% Al, max. 1-4% Si
*FeV - ferrovanadium
*FeSi - ferrosilicon - 15-90% Si
*FeB - ferroboron - 12-20% of boron, max. 3% of silicon, max. 2% aluminium, max. 1% of carbon
*FeP - ferrophosphorus
*FeCe - ferrocerium
*FeNb - ferroniobium, also called ferrocolumbium
*FeW - ferrotungsten
*FeAl - ferroaluminum
*SiMn - silicomanganese
*FeSiMg – ferrosilicon magnesium (with Mg 4 to 25 %), also called nodulizer

European producers of ferroalloys
