Lumpy Ferroalloys

The commercialisation of a wide range of ferroalloys for both the iron and steel industry and the foundry sector is COMETAL’s most important activity at present. It is worth highlighting our commercial activity in the different types of ferrochromium.

Ferroalloys are typically used in the manufacture of steels to add certain chemical elements that give alloyed steel or cast iron different and important characteristics.

COMETAL, whose main activity is related to ferroalloys, has a wide range of products in lumpy or cored wire to offer its customers the quality they always need.
