Ferroalloys prices



American Metal Market is expanding its ferroalloys coverage to include 50+ ferroalloys prices including 3 totally new US price assessments 

AMM has launched a new section of ferroalloys coverage available to AMM subscribers via AMM Daily and amm.com. American Metal Market Ferroalloys includes a table of 50+ newly added price assessments plus relevant news and market wraps for each major ferroalloys category. These materials are also loaded into price tracker and are available for download, data feeds, and charting alongside the other data you already get from AMM. The table below lists the new markets covered by AMM – each market name links to a landing page for that price assessment including material specifications and current assessed price.

New AMM ferroalloys price assessments

As we strive to create a complete view of the US ferroalloys market and its related materials, adding US-based assessments for Ferrotitanium, Manganese Electrolytic Metal and Aluminothermic Chromium Metal allows AMM to fill a gap in the market and offer comprehensive coverage for its clients.

Manganese Electrolytic Metal is a key element in the steelmaking process when a higher manganese content in the finished steel product is preferred. In particular, it is integral in the production of manganese-stainless steels, such as series 200. These steels are known to exhibit higher tensile strength.

Ferrotitanium is another important element utilized in steelmaking, particularly in the use of low carbon steel for the automotive industry. The material is also utilized in certain grades of stainless and high strength low alloy steels.

Meanwhile, Aluminothermic Chromium Metal is primarily utilized within the super alloy industry and is favored for its high temperature and corrosion resistance properties. These super alloys often service the aerospace, oil and gas, and petrochemical industries. The material is also consumed as an additive to specialty steels serving these same industries.

These are the material specifications for each new price assessment.
