About Elkem Foundry Products




Elkem is the world’s largest supplier of ferrosilicon-based special alloys. Its customers for ferrosilicon include iron foundries and steel mills worldwide. The car industry, line pipe manufacturers and other mechanical engineering companies are also important customer categories, and applications for the company’s products include complex foundry goods such as engine blocks and manifolds. Ferrosilicon from Elkem is used by the steel industry to produce carbon and stainless grades.

Over the last few years Elkem has systematically expanded its foundry product portfolio, enabling us to provide a package of specialised products and services which will assist in providing solutions to many of the challenges encountered by our customers.

In addition to our traditional range of high quality inoculants, nodularisers and charge materials, backed by our local teams of trained sales personnel, we are now able to provide to ferrous and non-ferrous foundries

  • design software and foundry process control systems as a result of our technology partnership with the leading software company Pico
  • other speciality charge materials for foundry metallurgy which enable our customers to reduce their supplier base.

All of the above will continue to be supported by our global group of highly skilled foundry experts (Technical Customer Service) whose prime role is to render the advice and technical service which will lead to providing solutions to your challenges through partnership with Elkem.

Quality & safety:

Important message regarding Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and Product Safety Information (PSI)

In light of the implementation of the globally harmonised system for classification and labelling of chemicals (UN-GHS), the term MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is no longer used and has been substituted by SDS (Safety Data Sheet). According to REACH article 31(1), SDS is only required for hazard-classified substances. Since none of the products of Elkem Foundry are or contains substances that are hazard classified, SDS for these products is not legally required.


For more information on this issue, kindly refer to the UK REACH Competent Authority Information Leaflet Number 13 – REACH and Safety Data Sheets
Since our customers request health and safety information, Elkem will continue to provide HSE information on the various sales products on a voluntary basis. This Product Safety Information (PSI) contains the same information as given in authentic SDS, but compliance with REACH and CLP is not mandatory. Consequently, (M)SDS for most products are no longer maintained and are replaced by PSI.
