Nickel Mag 3 is a nickel alloy containing 5 to 6.5 percent magnesium. It was developed for the foundry industry as an additive for the production of ductile iron. A highly efficient magnesium transfer is archived with this alloy, resulting in magnesium recoveries of 80 to 90 percent.
This foundry additive alloy has been used in the commercial production of ductile iron since its introduction more than fifty years ago.
The product has a density of 7.7 g/cc compared to 6.9 g/cc for liquid cast iron. Nickel Mag 3 can thus be dropped into the melt in ladles or furnaces. The relatively quiet reaction which follows is structure-controlled and depends on proper balance of the alloy composition.
The capability of adding Nickel Mag 3 directly into the melt makes it possible to treat at the most advantageous point in the process cycle. Small trim additives can also be made to furnaces or ladles to bring subcritical magnesium residuals into range and restore full spheroidization.
The usual relationship of improved magnesium treatment efficiency with decreasing temperature also applies to Nickel Mag 3.
Nickel Mag 3 is used as a deoxidizer and desulfurizer, and to control the morphology of sulfide inclusions in the steel industry.
