ferro aluminium

Ferro Aluminium is an alloy which is formed by combining iron and aluminium. Ferro Aluminium is primarily used as a de-oxidation agent for steel, as well as for moulding in combination with scrap copper and carbon steel. For example, when Ferro Aluminium alloy is melted and poured into moulds containing scrap, the mixture becomes very fluid and flows into the interstices between spatially arranged pieces of scrap. So, while the matrix alloy is actually a 65% aluminium alloy, it has the properties of a 40% alloy in terms of density.

Ferro Aluminium as an additive to the production process of amorphous metals will impart several desirable properties upon the resulting alloy. One of the primary benefits of adding Ferro Aluminium to an alloy is to increase the new alloys sensitivity to heat. When a low melting point is needed, or when a high degree of combustibility is needed, more Ferro Aluminium is added. Additionally, Ferro Aluminium as Ferro Aluminium Thermite is an agent, that when ignited and mixed, can give off super extreme amounts of heat. Although this reactant is stable at room temperature, it will burn via an extremely intense exothermic reaction.
