Ductile cast iron
Ductile cast iron (according to EN 1563), sometimes referred to as Spheroidal graphite cast iron has very good mechanical properties. Making it an excellent alternative to steel, even in dynamically loaded applications. This alloy is available in several qualities, from tough (ferritic) to strong and hard (pearlitic). The silicon alloyed (solid solution strengthened ferritic) grades are characterized by high elongation, homogeneous hardness independent of wall thickness and a relatively high 0.2% elongation limit in relation to tensile strength. Spheroidal graphite cast iron is a type of cast iron in which the free, unbound carbon is present in the form of nodules (spherical shapes) in the solidified cast iron. By adding alloying elements, the properties of the material can be influenced. This type of material is often used in automotive, earthmoving and machine industry.
