Grey cast iron (EN-GJL)

High resistance to abrasion with good dampening characteristics

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.

Details about the physical values of the materials, which we produce from grey iron cast are available in the datasheet Grey iron cast (EN-GJL).pdf, which is available as a download.
