Hot Top & Slag Getter
Hot Toppings are heat-generating powders that are applied to pouring cups and risers aiding in filling. They produce heat through intense exothermic reactions and are designed to burn at a controlled rate and emit low smoke. Hot Toppings create an insulating effect which prevents heat loss through the risers and they assist in the formation of piping in the risers to help feed castings more effectively. Manufactured with high purity ingredients such as metal powders rather than waste metallic oxides that are commonly used in other hot toppings, our hot toppings can be blended to customer requirements.
Slag Getter is a specially formulated blend of minerals specifically designed for use with various steel alloys. Because of its unique characteristics, Slag Getter has also been proven effective in certain grey and ductile iron applications. By tightly controlling the particle size of the material, Slag Getter has been engineered to achieve maximum results with minimum usage. Typical usage is to add Slag Getter as required by ladle size and overall surface area.
