Lamet® (Ladle Grades)

Lamet® nodulariser is used for ladle grades to give a more consistent recovery of the active elements. In addition to the conventional magnesium/mischmetal-containing nodularisers, Elkem has a range of materials designed specifically to provide further shrinkage reduction in ductile irons. These contain lanthanum as the only source of rare-earth and have the tradename Lamet® nodulariser.

Lamet is, as with all MgFeSi alloys, based on 45-50% Si bearing ferrosilicon and contains levels of lanthanum, calcium, and aluminum which can be varied to suit your process.

Benefits of Lamet® nodulariser include:

  • Minimized shrinkage
  • Increased nodule count and nodularity
  • Low chill tendency
  • Reduced costs
  • More consistent casting quality
