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 Fastmarkets 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.
