Casting Powder

Introduction

 

Casting powder (also known as “mold flux”) is the heart of continuous casting, which plays a key role in continuous casting process. Excellent casting powder performance could greatly improve surface quality of casting blank and casting speed.

Multiple kinds of calcium metasilicate and necessary raw materials mixed together per client’s specific steel making demands to produce casting powder.

Casting Trading company provide not just casting powder for clients, also customized design based on clients’ actual steel making demands. Over 30 years of casting powder production experience committed us to provide professional technical support & solutions for all our clients in domestic and overseas.

 

Five major effects of casting powder:

 

(1)Good lubrication for casting billets to smoothly pulled out of the crystallizer.
(2) Good insulation capacity and good diffused ability
(3) Heat transfer control, improve the heat conduction rate and uniformity.
(4) Prevent molten steel from secondary oxidation
(5)Absorb the inclusions to improve the cleanliness of the steel
