Chemical grain refinement vs. master alloys

Grain refinement is an essential part of the aluminium casting process with the aim of reducing the size of the primary aluminium grains during the solidification phase. This process has many advantages for most under- and eutectic aluminium alloys as it improves feeding, extension and mechanical properties, increases corrosion resistance to fatigue, improves machinability of the casting and reduces hot cracking. For many years grain refinement has been carried out with master alloys. In this webinar you will learn more about the use of chemical grain refiners and the technical differences between the two processes.
