GERMINAL 1499 – Grain Refining for Aluminium Silicon Alloys

Germinal 1499 is recommended for aluminium silicon alloys containing silicon over 13% and up to 26%. The tablet introduces phosphorous in the metal creating a very fine dispersion of silicon crystal plates. This phenomenon, known as grain refining, is easily obtained by using Germinal 1499.

Germinal 1499 guarantees a consistent and perfect distribution of phosphorous throughout the molten metal. The treatment will allow increase of mechanical characteristics and performances during thermal treatments of the alloy.
