Metallurgy

The metallurgy industry demands materials that deliver consistent results in extreme conditions. Our range of minerals and technical expertise combine to provide solutions for customers across four sectors: foundry, steel, refractories & welding.

Foundry

To avoid variations and scrapped castings, it’s important to use the right type and quality of sand for core and mould making. The right choice of sand should be determined by parameters such as a casting’s size, casting temperature, the type of metal in the casting and the production equipment used.

The broad range of materials in our foundry portfolio enables us to meet customers’ precise requirements, from chemical composition to grain size distribution. Products include:

  • Silica sands
  • Olivine sands
  • Mineral composites: FINMIX®
  • Bentonite
  • Vermiculite
  • Chromite

Steel, Refractory & Welding

High temperature environments demand materials with exceptional refractory properties. Our portfolio of materials for steel, refractory & welding includes:

  • Olivine sands (metallurgical and refractory grades)
  • Refractory masses
  • Silica sands
  • Bauxite
  • Manganese
  • Wollastonite
  • Rutile
  • Silicates
  • Iron based minerals
  • Clays
  • Feldspars
  • Petalite
