Mischmetal is a mixture of the rare earth metals containing the elements cerium and lanthanum as the main components. It is used for the production of flints and in the steel and foundry industries.
Mischmetal or cerium mischmetal is an extremely reactive substance and forms alloys with a variety of elements. Due to its properties, it is used as an additive in the steel and foundry industries, mischmetal binds oxygen and sulphur and, as an alloying metal, improves casting and flow properties.
Our cerium mischmetal is available in many shapes and specifications.
- Stainless steels
- Tool steels
- Spheroidal cast iron
- Casting alloys
- Magnesium alloys
- Galfan® alloys
