SKW products for other applications
Molten metals are cast for their various applications, either in the steel making process itself or the manufacturing of equipment and automotive parts etc. While still in the liquid form these metals are refined and processed according to the chemical and metallurgical specification that will determine their final characteristics.
The expertise that we have developed when producing products specifically for the treatment of steel we also apply in other metallurgical processes. SKW therefore offers products for the treatment of these liquid metals such as liquid cast iron in the foundry industry or liquid ferro and non-ferrous alloys such as ferro-nickel, ferro-manganese and/or copper.
Products for Cast Iron Foundries
Due to its many advantages, iron foundries increasingly apply magnesium cored wire is to produce ductile iron (through the transformation of flake graphite into spheroidal graphite).
SKW products are used in desulfurizing cast iron in the so-called cupola furnaces melting processes. Here granular products made of calcium oxide, calcium carbide, calcium fluoride and others are applied. Mini tubes filled with desulfurizing reagents are added to very small ladles used for individual component casts.

Copper Cored Wires
Developed for steelmaking and cast iron foundry, cored wires are used in copper / brass melts for the addition of chemical elements as Mg, Cr, Fe, Ca, CuZr. Suitable for continuous or batch processes.
