STEELMAKING ALLOYS

We manufacture alloys for the global steel industry in our Mendoza (Argentina), Bridgeport (Alabama), and Beverly (Ohio), facilities.

Ultracore ULTRACORE BRAND CALCIUM SILICON

The Mendoza plant of our Globe Metales S.A. unit is among the world's principal producers of calcium silicon alloys, critical ingredients in steel manufacturing, particularly in modern continuous casting processes. These alloys act as deoxidizers and degasifiers, in addition to imparting favorable properties to finished steel.

Ultracore ULTRACORE BRAND CORED WIRE ALLOYS

Globe Metales, along with our Ultracore Polska unit also specialize in producing a variety of alloys in cored-wire form, a delivery method preferred by a growing number of manufacturers, in both the steel and foundry industries. In this form, the alloy is ground to a fine size, encapsulated in a sheath of steel roll-formed into a tube and then wound into a coil. The steel sheath protects the alloy from oxidation and its fine size aids in the integration of the alloy into the molten metal. Globe Metales and Ultracore Polska produce a variety of formulations, diameters and lengths of cored-wire alloys to suit customer needs.

FERROSILICON

The Beverly, Ohio, USA plant of our Globe Metallurgical unit and the Bridgeport, Alabama plant of our Core Metals Group unit produce ferrosilicon. As a producer of ferrosilicon, these operating units have served the needs of the U.S. steel and foundry industries for over a quarter of a century. Whether used for deoxidizing, inoculating, alloying, or as a source of fuel, our quality ferrosilicon products have stood the test of time. We produce both 50% and 75% high-purity ferrosilicon in addition to regular commodity grades. The high-purity products are used in the production of grain-oriented and non-oriented electrical sheet and specialty steels requiring low levels of aluminum, titanium, boron, and other residual elements.

TECHNICAL SUPPORT

We strive to distinguish ourselves from our competitors by excelling in providing extensive technical advice and service to our steelmaking alloy customers, and have steel metallurgists on staff dedicated to this. In addition to providing our customers with advice on their manufacturing processes, we can tailor the chemical composition of our products to the specific requirements of each customer's product line and manufacturing processes.

QUALITY

Our steelmaking alloy customers are extremely quality conscious, as an error in chemical composition can shut down production. Our intensive quality control measures at each stage of the manufacturing process act to ensure that customer specifications are met. As testimony to our dedication to manufacturing excellence, we have received numerous industry awards including the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the Shigeo Shingo Prize for Manufacturing Excellence and the U.S. Senate Productivity Award, as well as numerous supplier quality certifications.
