Ferro Silicon is an alloy which is produced by combining iron and 15% to 90% of silicon. Ferro Silicon or FeSi is widely used in color or non-color metallurgy industry as an important deoxidizing material and besides this is used as a bud or spraut in the Moulding industry. Also, it is primarily used as a deoxidizing material in steel alloy manufacturing industries, in producing cast iron and steel, developing metallic structure and granulation in the molding of alloy and non-alloy cast irons, refurbishment of other Ferro alloys.

Ferro silicon is mainly used as important deoxidizer in steel- making.
This is used as alloy elements join agent, that are generally used in heat-resistant alloy steel, low bearing steel, steels, non-ferrous metal.
Ferro silicon normally used as a chief reductant in ferroalloy production and chemical industry. Ferro silicon normally used as a chief reductant in ferroalloy production and chemical industry.
Ferro silicon is also used in iron industry as inoculants and nodulizer.
