Ferro Sulphide

The production of free cutting steels using ferrous sulphide provides a cost effective solution in adding Sulphur. The Sulphur combines with the Manganese to form Manganese Sulphide inclusions which act as a lubricant reduces tool wear and machining loads. It also promotes chip formation and break up during machining.

It is also used as a trim addition in iron. Ferrous Sulphide is supplied as 50% Sulphur and sized as 10-50 mm, available in all packing formats.
