Due to its high electrical conductivity, ALLIEDPUREIRON® can be used for example in power rails/third rails and earthing cables. It can also replace copper-clad wires in ignition wires.
Soft metal gaskets
Mechanical properties are essential for a number of applications, such as cold working. Compared to other steels, ALLIEDPUREIRON® has the advantage of low tensile strength and hardness, as well as high elongation and toughness values due to its chemical purity and homogeneous material structure. It is often used for metal gaskets or ring joints in the petrochemical/chemical industry acc. to specifications/hardness requirements of max. 90 HB, but also in the automotive and electrical industries. It features very high resistance to corrosion and oxidation, and good resistance to acids due to the extremely high grade of iron purity.
CP - cathodic protection
ALLIEDPUREIRON® is often used as a sacrificial anode in cooling systems of a wide variety of industrial plants, in seawater-cooled heat exchangers, and in desalination plants. It is mostly used together with pipes made of copper-nickel content 90/10.
Possible applications include Damascene blades and knives, wrought gates and fences, or restoration of very old iron parts, such as nails for Viking ships. It is often used to replace the wrought-/anchor iron.
ALLIEDPUREIRON® is used for batch galvanizing, continuous sheet galvanizing, zinc spraying, and cold galvanizing in the manufacture of galvanizing baths, rollers, screws, hooks, racks, and pyrometer protection tubes of measurement instruments. ALLIEDPUREIRON® is characterized by long service life and low zinc absorption.
It is used as an electrode in salt baths, e.g. for pistons.
