About Ferro Silicon Zirconium
Ferro Silicon Zirconium, which is sometimes referred to as Zirconium Ferro Silicon or Silicon Zirconium, is an alloy of Ferro Silicon with 25-40% of Zirconium. It is used in Steel and Cast Iron production to improve the mechanical properties of the metal. The addition of Zirconium to Ferro Silicon gives enhanced strength, ductility and heightened resistance to oxidation and corrosion.
Ferro Silicon Zirconium can also reduce chill in areas of castings that cool more rapidly.
Ferro Silicon Zirconium is used as an inoculant and pre-conditioner in ductile Iron. It is also used in the production of high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) steels, which have applications in automotive, oil and gas and construction industries.
