Ferrosilicon (FeSi) is a silicon and iron alloy where both chemical substances are mixed in varied ratios. It looks like a crystalline solid alloy metal which has no odour. It is flammable and can explode with oxidizing materials and emits toxic and explosive fumes in the presence of moisture. It is mainly used as an alloying component for deoxidation in steelmaking and magnesium processing.

Production Processes

Ferrosilicon is produced by smelting a mixture of iron ore, coke, and silica in a high-temperature electric furnace. The coke reduces the iron ore, resulting in elemental iron. Silicon is added, reacting with the iron to form ferrosilicon. The molten ferrosilicon is then tapped, cooled, and solidified into ingots or granules.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
