Thanks to this casting, we get parts with very high resistance to temperature, such as engine intake pieces. It is a very unique technology since it requires a great level of knowledge and experience by the staff. This technology has a widespread use in automotive. This is achieved due to the following properties of its chemical components:
Silicon (Si): Used as a deoxidizing element. It is the fundamental alloying element of the magnetic sheet and that used in electrical applications. Improves resistance to oxidation. Increases hardenability in steels with non-graphitizing elements. Increases strength of low alloy steels.
Molybdenum (Mo): Raises the grain growth temperature of austenite. Increases hardenability. It counteracts the fragility of temper. Improves hot strength and increases hot hardness. Increases corrosion resistance in stainless steels. It forms particles resistant to abrasion.
