Which applications for Chromite?

Chromite is widely used in foundry for its refractory attributes.

In foundries, it is commonly used in green sand casting for complex flows (with core).

Chromite refractory attributes (from 1700 to 1800 degrees) makes it suitable for refractory bricks manufacturing. Which can, without any risks, go through heating cycles and cooling without hasty wear and tears.

Chromite flour is also used as a colorant in ceramics (enamels and frits), also bricks and tiles made of terra cotta, bottles of wine, and bottles of beer. Finally, it goes into the cement manufacturing process.

Chromite is also used in some operations during leather tanning. It allows leather to better last and to avoid rotting.

Chrome ore stays mainly used in all stainless iron formulations. This ore make the alloy resistant to rust and corrosion. It is also used in the plating of chrome which allows to further increase the roughness of covered steel and gives it shininess.

What are Chromite properties?

Chromite ore offers excellent refractory properties when used a range from 1700 to 1800 degrees.

This ore offers a high thermal stability, endurance to thermal choc and corrosive gas.
