MMC’s grey Low Oxygen flake receives a chemical treatment to passivate the outer surface of the flake, to prevent surface oxidation. The flakes are washed and dried after passivation.
The oxygen content of this product does not exceed 0.1%. The hydrogen content is typically 250 ppm.
LO flake is mostly used in applications where high-value alloys are produced in vacuum induction melting furnaces. For all other flake applications, MMC’s LH flake is the preferred raw material.
