Ductile iron casting(2)

- Jan 08, 2021-

Ductile iron combines the processing advantages of gray iron (low melting point, good fluidity and castability, and ready machinability) with many of the engineering advantages of steel (high strength, ductility and wear resistance), which allows for higher material properties as tensile and yield strength than gray iron. Table 4 shows the properties for various grades of ductile iron.

In all its grades, ductile iron exhibits mechanical properties that make it an ideal alloy for sand and investment castings.
