Product description

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.

All products offered by this exhibitor

Ni-Resist / austenitic cast iron

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. Further Ni-Resist, also called austenitic cast iron, is non-scaling, resistant to erosion and is not magnetisable. The reason for these characteristics ...read more

Chilled cast iron

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 plates and even for armour plates for mills. Here the reason is in the inclusion of carbon. At chilled cast iron carbon is not present ...read more

Dupelx stainless steel

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 example with crude oil or sea water. The two-phase structure of duplex stainless steels which consists of a ferritic matrix with austenite ...read more

Spheroidal iron

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 ductility values. An additional advantage of the material: through further alloying we can further improve abrasion resistance, heat ...read more

Cast steel

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 or chemical resistance or high solidity is needed. Castings from steel are therefore mainly used in shipbuilding, in engineering, in the automotive ...read more
