Grey cast iron is the most frequent used iron-carbon alloy. Its unique characteristic is its high abrasion resistance and its good pouring capability. Also the material is easy to process and it dampens extremely well mechanic vibrations. The reasons for these physical characteristics lie in the structure of the cast iron. Carbon in grey cast iron is found in blades, which form three-dimensional ramifications. Yet, this bladed graphite is also responsible for the very low ductility of the material.

If one needs high resistance to corrosion, e.g. against the influences of sea water or against alkaline mediums, then the material Ni-Resist is highly suitable.
At chilled cast iron the name is the program: an extreme abrasion resistance of the iron-carbon alloy makes this material ideal for camshafts, ore crushers, grinding ...
Due to its high corrosion resistance duplex stainless steels are often used in areas where there is a permanent contact between parts and aggressive media as for ...
Spheroidal iron shows high ductility. And even more. It possesses an extremely high solidity, which is partly even higher than ductile and steel cast iron with identical ...
As regards to its mechanical properties cast steel is in many ways superior to grey and spheroidal iron. Steel is foremost used as a material when a clear thermal ...
