CERALOY-TiB(5:1/3:1)
CERALOY TiB is a grain refiner for Al-Si hypo-eutectic and eutectic alloys, it is available in different compositions like 5:1, 3:1 etc.
  • Grain Refiner

General Description

  • CERALOY TiB is a grain refiner for Al-Si hypo-eutectic and eutectic alloys, it is available in different compositions like 5:1, 3:1 etc.
  • CERALOY TiB is recommended for grain refining aluminium alloys.

Purpose

  • Generally aluminium and its alloys solidify in heterogeneous manner to give coarse dendritic structure.
  • Coarse grain structure imposes problems like poor mechanical properties, poor feeding characteristics, and gives poor response to surface and heat treatment processes.
  • CERALOY-TiB is recommended to overcome many of the above problems.
  • Being metallic in nature, CERALOY-TiB dissolves readily in aluminium alloys and thus gives more consistent results as compared to salt-based grain refiners.
  • It has superior fade resistance and hence retains the refinement effect over a much longer period of time.
  • Use of CERALOY-TiB is far more environment friendly than the conventional salt based refiners.
  • Since no chemical reaction is involved, crucible life can be improved.

  • CASTING WITH IMPROVED AND CONSISTENT MECHANICAL AND METALLURGICAL
    PROPERTIES:
  • CERALOY improves as –cast mechanical properties such as tensile strength and elongation.
  • The longer modification effect gives consistent metallurgical and mechanical properties of the castings.
  • BETTER MACHINABILITY : - The refined metallurgical structure and improved distribution of silicon phase gives better machinability and improved surface texture.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL CLEANLINESS :-   Use of CERALOY gives cleaner working environment since no chemical reaction is involved.
  • Prepare the desired alloy composition.
  • Follow the normal fluxing and cleansing procedure recommended by using suitable flux from CERAFLUX range.
  • Degas the melt with degassing tablet by using suitable grade from CERAFLUX range and dross off using small quantity of CERAFLUX-11.
  • After the degassing operation, add CERALOY-TiB and rabble it to ensure homogeneity of the composition.
