We discover the unseen values of the world; blend them with our advanced technical expertise and create value for our whole ecosystem. At the end, the result is impeccable; we produce the metals that are essential for technology and modern society. You can find them in automobiles, construction materials, consumer goods, surgical instruments and in your daily life.
Chrome is an exceptionally unique element found in the periodic table. It is the only material, which provides the corrosion resistance and toughness to stainless steel. First chrome is transformed into ferrochrome; then, ferrochrome is used to produce wide variety of products including specialty alloys to stainless steel. Stainless steel as a material is used in modern society and through everyday living.
Vanadium is alloyed with iron, to ferrovanadium, to be used in the manufacturing of specialty steel, stainless steel and construction steel. Even at the very low dosage usage, it has a capability of increasing the tensile strength of steel. Hence, rebar reinforcing the concrete structures, consequently the modern society, contains significant amount of vanadium.
Molybdenum provides alloys hardness, strength, electrical conductivity and resistance to wear as well as corrosion. Molybdenum performs incredibly well under very high temperatures due to its high melting point. Especially in engines where these extreme temperatures usually occur, many materials fail to function. On the other hand, under this circumstance molybdenum-sulfide can manage the heat and keep parts moving.
Sodium is a very versatile element. Alone it is explosive. Combined with chlorine, it's salt (sodium chloride). Combining it with carbonate it is sodium carbonate (soda ash). Historically, soda carbonate (Na2CO3) has been in our lives for more than 5,000 years. Soda carbonate that Qazaq Soda will be making has a vast area of usage from glass production, mining, detergents, chemicals, soaps, textile and paper to food.
