the charges 1 and 2 were treated with greater quantities (identical for the two charges) of nodulizing modifier, FeSiMgCe(RE) and with same amount of graphitizing modifiers, but different from the chemical composition point of view: FeSi--charge 1 and FeSiSr--charge2;
It is explained by development at mentioned temperature values of amorphous carbon graphitizing processes, because electric conductivity of graphite in comparison with amorphous carbon is much higher, and SER of considered material intensively reduces.
