Haldivor Energy long-standing cooperation with coal suppliers and key clients in the world of commodities has led organically to the supplying of other “hard commodities” – metallurgical products, notably steel alloys and non-ferrous metals (metals that do not contain appreciable amounts of iron).
Technically, every steel is considered an alloy, but to be called ‘steel alloy’ other metals must be added to the basic composition of iron and carbon to turn it into a high-value product for consumer and industrial use. Steel alloys are most commonly used to manufacture pipes, bike frames and heating elements in household appliances. Only a small percentage of alloying elements is enough to improve the strength, corrosion resistance and improve response to heat treatment.
In metallurgy, non-ferrous metals, such as aluminum, copper, gold, silver and zing, do not contain iron, thus can withstand moisture without rusting. This special property makes them ideal for use in manufacturing aircrafts, food cans, jewelry, batteries, roofing and outdoor signs.
