INGOT CASTING

ISO EX 26

Exothermic covering agent for ingot casting
Description

 

ISO EX 26 is an insulating covering powder with exothermic effect, used for head treatment in ingot casting.

 

Main Ingredients: Al, Al2O3

Bulk density: 1.3 kg / dm3

Ignition temperature: > 300 ° C

Application

 

After the mold is filled with liquid steel, the ingot head treatment begins. In this process ISO EX 26 is usually applied in a specific quantity of approx. 4 kg/t steel. For steel grades susceptible to shrinkage, ISO EX 26 is applied in combination with THERMO D3 - a highly exothermic powder - and applied as a second, insulating layer.

Effect

 

The product has an exothermic and subsequently insulating effect. The delayed solidification in the ingot head basically results in the following advantages:

 

  • Reduction of blowholes

  • Increase in yield

  • Increase in process reliability
