DIN GGG60 & GGG70 Material:
Iron-carbon alloys with a carbon content of more than 2%.
Industrial cast iron generally has a carbon content of 2% to 4%.
Carbon exists mostly in the form of graphite in cast iron, and sometimes also in the form of cementite.
In addition to carbon, cast iron also contains 1% to 3% silicon, as well as elements such as manganese, phosphorus, and sulfur. Alloy cast iron also contains elements such as nickel, chromium, molybdenum, aluminum, copper, boron, and vanadium. Carbon and silicon are the main elements affecting the microstructure and properties of cast iron.
