Description

Cast iron products by sand casting

Cast iron includes gray iron, ductile iron (nodular), white iron, compacted graphite iron and malleable iron. Cast iron castings have been used widely in industries and machineries since the modern foundry estabilished. Even in current times, the iron castings still play an important role in trucks, railroad freight cars, tractors, construction machineries, heavy duty equipment...etc.

Grey cast iron (also called grey cast iron) is a group of cast iron including several kinds of grade according to different designation of diverse standards. Gray cast iron is a kind of iron-carbon alloy and it gets its name "grey" from the fact that their cutting sections looks grey. The metallographic structure of gray cast iron is mainly composed of flake graphite, metal matrix and grain boundary eutectic. During the grey iron, the Carbon is in the flake graphite. As one of the widely used casting metals, cast gray iron has many advangates in costs, castability and machinablity.

Performance Characteristics of Gray Iron Castings

• Liquid gray iron has good fluidity, and its volume shrinkage and linear shrinkage are small, and the notch sensitivity is small
• Low comprehensive mechanical properties, compressive strength is about 3~4 times higher than tensile strength
• Good shock absorption, the shock absorption of gray iron is about 10 times greater than that of cast steel
• Gray iron has low modulus of elasticity
