Ferroniobium is the main source for niobium alloying of HSLA (high-strength low-alloy) steel. For alloying with steel the ferroniobium is added to molten steel before casting. Since Ferro Niobium can effectively double the strength and toughness, as well as reduce the weight of the alloy, it is a highly desirable compound. Ferro Niobium is an additive to the production process of amorphous metals, and will impart several desirable properties upon the resulting compound. One of the primary benefits of adding Ferro Niobium to an alloy is in its anti-corrosive properties (better than carbon steel). Additionally, the adding of Ferro Niobium to an alloy can make it more weldable and much stronger.
