Metallurgy

Although at first glance the steel and foundry industries appear to supply traditional products, they are continually searching for new applications and raw materials. Sibelco Europe MineralsPlus' industrial minerals have unique properties, which give added value to your products.

Casting powders, slag-forming additives

In the steel industry, our products are used in casting powders. In continuous casting of steel, these powders function as a protective layer between the steel and the copper chill mould or as a slag-forming additive.

In the foundry industry, our products are used particularly as a binder in clay-bonded moulding sand. Our fused silica is highly suitable for use as cores, as moulding material in precision casting or as strengthening stucco.
