Nickel Calcium is a nickel-calcium alloy with 5.0 to 6.5 percent calcium with sizing of half rounds (3 x 2 x 1 -½”). Nickel Calcium facilitates the addition of calcium to molten baths during the production of low alloy steels, stainless and heat resisting alloys, and nickel-base alloys. Calcium can be introduced safely and efficiently by means of this foundry additive product in both cast and wrought alloys.
Nickel Calcium has a density of 7.3 to 7.6 g/cc which is greater than that of liquid cast iron. (The theoretical density is 7.6 g/cc.) This allows for a clean, consistent calcium addition to molten iron and steel under controlled conditions.
Calcium is not only a scavenger for deleterious elements but, when present as a residual, it can improve ambient and high temperature properties of both ferrous- and nickel-base alloys.
Nickel Calcium permits a safe, final addition of calcium to achieve improvement in mechanical and physical properties without sacrificing cleanliness of the product.
The advantages to be gained by adding calcium to a wide variety of cast and wrought alloys include :
Efficient deoxidation and desulfurization to consistent low levels
Sulfide shape control; improved hot workability in high alloy steels
Improved ingot surface quality for reduced billet grinding
Improved mechanical properties and machinability for low alloy steels
Increased consistency in resistance wire alloys
