Speciality Master Alloys

Metal industry uses master alloys to adjust the properties of its products. A master alloy is a base metal such as aluminium, copper or nickel combined with a relatively high percentage of one or two other elements.

It enables manufacturers to overcome problems associated with alloying that they may experience when working with molten metals.

Master Alloys are commonly used as additives in the manufacture of other alloys or as deoxidants, degasifiers, desulphurizing agents or of similar use in the metallurgy of non ferrous metals.

A Master Alloy can be referred to as a ?hardener?, ?grain refiner? or ?modifier?, depending on the application.
