F-0005Re Combination Iron

F-0005 RE is a combination blend of remill and virgin irons mixed to meet MPIF F-0005 chemistry requirements. F-0005 RE is a press ready mix containing 0.75% lubricant. It is commonly used to produce net-shape lawn and garden, light industrial and household goods. F-0005 RE may be machined, but some applications may not machine as well as virgin powder mixes. Additions of MnS are common for applications requiring machining.
