... conductivity in these alloys. Many foundries using these alloys specify that the manganese content shall be greater than one-half the iron content. (e.g., %Mn ≥ ½ %Fe) Maintaining manganese in the alloy changes the type of iron-bearing compounds, which form during solidification. The result is improved feeding...
