The Commerce Dept. announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the anti-dumping investigation of imports of silicomanganese from Australia.
Silicomanganese is a ferro alloy composed of manganese, silicon, and iron, and normally contains smaller proportions of minor elements, such as carbon, phosphorus, and sulfur. It is used in steel production as a source of both silicon and manganese, and sometimes as an alloying agent in the production of iron castings.
Commerce preliminarily determined that imports of silicomanganese from Australia have been sold in the US at a dumping margin of 11.93%.
