ELIDRON 199 – Degassing Treatments of all Aluminium Alloys

Elidron 199 release Nitrogen gas useful for washing and degassing the molten alloy. Nitrogen gas has a very positive effect for the removal of hydrogen entrapped by the metal during melting operations and for bringing to bath surface all oxides, micro-oxides and impurities. These oxides, suspended in the liquid bath, are surrounded by hydrogen gas and only the removal of oxides will contribute to hydrogen elimination.

Elidron 199 has a combined effect of physical and chemical nature.

Elidron 199 is recommended for degassing treatments of all Aluminium alloys in all types of furnaces and pouring ladles. The product is not suitable for Al-Mg alloys with a content of Magnesium above 3%.
