Since its founding in 1950 as the Kawecki Chemical Company, the name KB Alloys has been synonymous with innovation and leadership in the aluminum master alloy industry. Many of today's industry standardsmetallurgical grain refiners, including TIBOR®, TITAL® and TICAR®, waffle ingot and rod, along with countless chemistry advances-number among KB Alloys' "industry-firsts."

TIBOR®, TICAR® and TITAL® master alloys are used for grain refinement to deter cracking in the ingots when casting and to improve casting speeds. BORAL® master alloy is used to improve conductivity, beryllium to minimize magnesium burn off, and strontium to modify the silicon phase in foundry alloys. Hardener alloys are used to improve mechanical and physical properties. MULTIPLEX® alloys provide an effective method for simultaneous introduction of multiple alloying elements. Alloys are available in a variety of formsingot, bar, buttons, flake and coiled and cut rodeach designed to increase throughput, uniformity and better predictability as compared to pure elements or salts.
