Information profile @ a Glance
  • A master alloy is a base metal such as aluminum, copper or nickel combined with a relatively high percentage of one or two other elements
  • Master alloys are produced in various shapes. Examples are: ingot, waffle plate, rod in coils
  • A master alloy is sometimes also referred to as "hardener", "grain refiner" or "modifier" depending on its application.
  • Aluminum master Alloys are often added to strengthen the alloy and are therefore often referred to as "hardeners". Another group is the "grain refiners", alloys that are added for structure control.
  • A grain refiner influences the aluminum alloy during the solidification stage. Its role is to  prevent cracking, combat shrinkage porosity and increase the casting speed
  • Aluminum-Boron or AlB or Boral is added to increase the electrical conductivity of EC grade aluminium
  • Aluminium Master Alloys and Compacted Alloying Products. Competition in the markets for aluminium master alloys and compacted alloying products is global, because of the relatively small number
    of master alloy and alloying tablet manufacturers and the worldwide operations of producers in the
    aluminium industry. In most markets, the Company faces competition to varying degrees from KBM Affilips B.V., KBAlloys, Inc. (and its UK subsidiary, Anglo Blackwells, Ltd.), Aleastur (Asturiana de Aleaciones, S.A.), Eramet S.A. and Hoesch-Metallurgie GmbH. Competition from low-cost producers has in the past pushed prices down and could do so again in the future.
