Elidron 208

Elidron 201 releases Nitrogen gas which is useful for washing and degassing the molten alloy. Nitrogen gas removes hydrogen entrapped by the metal during melting operations and brings to bath surface all oxides, micro-oxides and impurities. Elidron 201 tablets have a combined effect. The tablets, dissolved by metal temperature, release nitrogen gas capable to remove hydrogen dissolved in the metal and non-metallic impurities floating inside the bath. The chemical compounds contained in the product are capable to react with oxides and to clean the alloy from non-metallic impurities. Elidron 201 is recommended for degassing treatments of all Aluminium alloys in all types of furnaces and pouring ladles. The product is not suitable for aluminium-magnesium alloys with a content of Magnesium above 3%. In this case we recommend Elidron 208.
