Lamellar graphite cast iron

Cast iron with lamellar-graphite, also known as grey iron, is an iron-carbon alloy with good characteristics for use and treatment. The material predominantly has high pressure resistance, extremely good dampening characteristics, resistance to wear and good resistance to corrosion.

The reason for these exceptional physical features is the arrangement of the graphite in the casting material. In grey iron it is present in flakes, which form a three-dimensional complex structure.

Lamellar-graphite cast iron is mostly used for contoured and thin-walled casts. And for casts with a complicated form.

As grey iron is absolutely the best at profitability, it is clear that this cast material is used mostly.
The standardised term for flake-graphite cast iron is EN-GJL.
