We make our cored wire using low-carbon, low-sulfur steel sheath, where we tightly encase powdered minerals, metals, and ferroalloys. These powders are precisely added in a way that ensures consistent chemistry and density throughout the length of every coil we produce. Our calcium wires are designed with a special insulation to provide deeper penetration into liquid metal and improved performance.
Affival was the first to produce cored wire, and we remain the world leader in cutting-edge cored-wire technology.
Our technical team can leverage our newly developed calcium treatment model to optimize your calcium-wire treatment and improve recovery.
Wire injection using Affival cored wire is the most cost-effective process for in-ladle treatment.
At Affival, we understand that the equipment you use for application is just as important as the product itself. We offer a wide range of Wire Feeder options that can be designed specifically for your setup. For more information on our Wire Feeder Equipment and Engineering, click here.
Cored wire can contain any of the following:
Affival HDx cored wire allows calcium to react deeper in the ladle for the most cost-effective results and superior inclusion morphology. Learn more here.
