Inoculation Cored Wire

Asmet offer a range of inoculation cored wires to offer a controlled method for inoculation treatment.

Our expert metallurgists provide a comprehensive service for new wire process installations including supply of wire machines, product trials and testing.

Barium Inoculation Cored Wire

Description:

Barcast inoculation cored wire provides an effective, efficient and precisely controlled means of inoculating grey and ductile cast iron. The elements barium, aluminium and calcium give the alloy an excellent inoculation effect over a wide range of applications.

Sizes:

Available in 5, 9 and 13 mm wire form.

Packaging:

Pay off packs in various sizes

Chemical Composition:

AlBaCaSi
1.5% max0.4 - 1.0%0.4 - 1.0%60 - 70%

Bismuth Inoculation Cored Wire

Description:

Biscast inoculation cored wire provides an effective, efficient and precisely controlled means of inoculating Ductile Iron.

The combination of bismuth and cerium dramatically increases the number of nodules generated during solidification, reducing susceptibility to carbide and promoting the formation of ferrite.

Sizes:

Available in 5, 9 and 13 mm wire form.

Packaging:

Strontium Inoculation Cored Wire

Description:

Castron inoculation  cored wire provides an effective, efficient and precisely controlled means of inoculating Grey Cast Iron, providing excellent chill reduction in thin sections and enhancing the promotion of type ‘A’ graphite.

Castron wire is also used to inoculate compact graphite iron in order to reduce carbide formation without promoting nodular graphite.

Sizes:

Available in 5, 9 and 13 mm wire form.

Packaging:

Zirconium Inoculation Cored Wire

Description:

Inomet inoculation cored wire provides an effective, efficient and precisely controlled means of inoculating both grey and ductile cast iron with excellent solubility and enhanced cleanliness. These unique properties make Inomet wire suitable for low temperature and final stage applications.

Sizes:

Available in 5, 9 and 13 mm wire form.
