Chromium is a steely-gray, lustrous, hard metal that takes a high polish and has a high melting point. It is also odorless, tasteless, and malleable. Chromium is an extremely versatile element and finds a wide variety of uses in applications in the steel and alloys, chemical and refractory industries.
There are two ways of producing chromium metal, by aluminothermic process from chrome oxide and by electrolytic process using ferrochromium or chromic acid. Chromium metal standard grades range from 99% to 99.4%. Higher grades are available at 99.6% Cr and degassed quality at 99.8% Cr.
Chrome metal is mainly used in the production of specialty alloys, nickel and cobalt -based alloys (super alloys) where low iron is required. Due to their unique high temperature and corrosion resistance properties, these high performance alloys are used in the most critical environments, such as aeronautic, oil & gas production, land based turbines, petrochemical and chemical processing. In addition, chromium metal powder is used in the production of welding electrodes and cored wires, aluminium briquettes and master alloys.
