Guidance on making ferroniobium additions during ladle steelmaking
Niobium has an established niche in many types of steel products because of its unique ability to improve strength, toughness and weldability. About 15 percent of ferroniobium (FeNb) ends up in stainless steel production, which is an important growth sector, but the vast majority is currently consumed in the production of what we call high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels, often also referred to as microalloyed steels.
