Product

  • CERALOY -Si is an aluminum-silicon alloy.
  • This alloy is used to add silicon metal in molten aluminum or its alloy to produce LM series alloys.

Purpose

  • CERALOY- Si as an aluminum-silicon alloy used to add silicon in molten aluminum alloys.
  • Most casting alloys contain silicon as the major alloying element
  • Silicon forms a eutectic with aluminum at 11.7% Si.
  • Silicon additions improve casting characteristics by improving fluidity, feeding and hot tear resistance.

  • Melt the aluminum metal.
  • Add CERALOY Si as desired for alloy composition at around 700 to 750ºC.
  • Wait until the alloy is completely dissolved.
  • Stir the melt to get the homogenous dissolution of silicon in the liquid aluminum metal.
  • Degas the melt at suitable temperature & clean with small amount of flux.
  • After all the process is completed, take the sample for checking the silicon content, if satisfactory start pouring immediately.
