Improving the properties of near net shape cast strip containing copper and tin from scrap

Objective

The project aims to reduce or eliminate the deleterious effects of copper and tin arising from the use of recycled scrap by making use of the special features of near net shape casting together with direct in-line hot rolling. These tramp elements are known to influence the steel through processes controlled by diffusion and oxidation. By applying new knowledge and technical advances - high cooling rated and keeping a protective atmosphere - these problems can be overcome and, furthermore, the copper content can be utilised as an alloying element to raise the strength. Twin roll cast strip (1-5 mm thick) and DSC strip (8-15 mm thick) will be produced, their properties will be studied and compared with those from conventional production.
