HomeProductsInoculants

Inoculants are ferrosilicon based alloys which are used to facilitate desired grain structures and evenly distribute graphitic particles in both grey iron and ductile iron.  Inoculants can contain many different combinations of metals.

 

Calsifer 50 and Calsifer 75 are specially sized and a proper composition for the inoculation of gray and ductile cast irons.

Graphidox improves quality of steel castings and increases yield strength, ductility, and low temperature impact toughness properties.

Low Calcium Graphidox is a highly effective proprietary inoculant designed for effective, economical inoculation of both gray cast iron and compacted graphite irons. This titanium bearing ferroalloy is highly efficient as both a graphidizer and deoxidizer. In addition, titanium in Low Calcium Graphidox reacts with nitrogen in iron to reduce chances of nitrogen porosity.
