Covering powders

Supply of cover powders for the steel industry

Steelmaking covering powders can have different functions depending on the needs of the user and its application, they can be either isothermal or exothermal or a combination of both. 

An isothermal covering powder will have an insulating effect on the liquid metal to prevent heat loss.

An exothermic covering powder will provide the thermal properties necessary for good liquefaction and homogeneity of the molten steel, and thus a gain in temperature.

Covering powders are used in a variety of applications in the steel industry, in casting molds, ingot molds, ladles and tundishes in continuous casting. 

The use of quality covering powders promotes casting at the desired temperature, avoids inclusions during solidification in the mold and optimizes the energy costs of production.

Selecting a steelmaking cover powder

There are many factors to be considered when choosing a covering powder for steelmaking. Firstly, it is important to consider the area of application of the cover powder as well as the type of metal being cast. Different metals have different melting points, so it is important to choose the right powder. You also need to consider whether you want to use the powder for isothermal, exothermal or isothermal/exothermal purposes.
