High Carbon Ferro-Manganese

High Carbon Ferro Manganese (FeMn) is product containing besides iron, 70% min to 75% min of manganese. It is used as a de-oxidizer for manufacturing of non-magnetic stainless steel and for the introduction of manganese into steel. Manganese is very important element in steel as it improves  the strength, toughness, hardness and workability. Manganese also helps in getting ingots free from blow holes.

It lowers the critical temperature and promotes the formation of pearlite. Manganese dissolves in solid solution of ferrite, combines with carbon to form carbides. it improves weldability, wear resistance and strength without adversely affecting the ductility of steel.

Vulcan Alloys currently trades in multiple grades of High Carbon Ferro Manganese
