Compacted Additives

Compacted alloying additives also (known as ALTAB™) are a mixture of hardener elements such as Mn, Cr, Fe, Ti and Cu compacted with high grade aluminium powder.

About

Compacted alloying additives also (known as ALTAB™) are a mixture of hardener elements such as Mn, Cr, Fe, Ti and Cu compacted with high grade aluminium powder.

Compacted additives have a slower recovery time and lower recovery rate than that of master alloys as the elements in question are not in solution with aluminium. However, many cast-house operations have adopted an economical practice that includes the use of both high concentration compacted additives and lower concentration hardener waffle to achieve the desired recovery and productivity results.

Product Types

AMG’s ALTAB™ alloying tablets are used in casthouses world-wide for the manufacture of high-quality aluminium alloys. In applications such as rolling ingot for foilstock and canstock, billet for precision extrusions and high-quality foundry casting alloys. For the precise compositional adjustment of alloy melts or for bulk element addition, ALTAB™ is the optimum choice.
