Abstract

Aluminium has various uses of iron metallurgy. It is often used as an alloying additive to increase the mechanical or improve physical properties. Known are cast with an aluminum content of 3-8 %, but the Al content is between 28-30 % used in the refractory cast iron for temperatures up to 1000 °C. In small quantities, is used for deoxidation, possibly as part of preparations for inoculation gray cast iron or spheroidal graphite. In this paper, we evaluated the test results of the metallurgical processing of cast iron, where it was used for inoculation of cast iron, aluminum complex inoculant and pure aluminum combined with elements of boron and rare earth metals.
