  FERROUS   Special-Alloys   INOCULANT - SPHERIX / INOLATE40  
 
INOCULANT - SPHERIX / INOLATE40
  DESCRIPTION
SPHERIX or (INOLATE 40 for in stream inoculantion) is based on 75% Silicon and contains strictly controlled properties of Bismuth and Rare Earths (RE).
The use of Spherix results in a reduction of Chill, particularly in fast cooling thin section castings.
Thus a ferritic as-cast structure can be achieved, which is desirable in order to keep the production cost under control.

Advatages of SPHERIX
SPHERIX is based on 75% Silicon and contains strictly controlled proportions of Bismuth and Rare Earths(RE).
It combines the beneficial effects of both Bi and RE in order to improve nucleation performance by increasing the Nodule Count and reducing the fading.
The increased nodule count results in a reduction of chill even in section size below 3mm. Besides, a ferritic as-cast structure can be achieved, which improves ductility and mechanical properties of the casting.
- For base Iron with a high level of trace elements.
- For Iron treated with pure Mg (S and O low)
- For sophisticated casting designs.
- Inoculation process optimisation (reduction in addition rate)
- To avoid metallurgical defects such as chunky, chill, inverse chill.
- To improve machinability
- To increase the ability to produce more complicated castings (competitiveness advantage)
