Materials

Grey Iron

 

  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Easier to cast due to expansion
  • Grey iron also has unique properties which are useful for applications with sliding surfaces like hydraulic pistons.
  • Free graphite within the structure acts as a lubricant and aids machining.
  • Excellent damping and wear characteristics.
  • Used where tensile strength and ductility are non-critical:
    • Housings
    • Engine blocks
    • Valve bodies

Cheaper than other materials

SG Iron

 

  • High tensile strength and ductility compared to grey iron.
  • Tensile strength and ductility can vary across the range of grades allowing for irons to be suitable for a wide range of applications:
    • Automotive components
    • Load bearing applications
  • Replaces steel for many applications and achieves a significant cost saving
  • Easy to machine
  • Corrosion resistant compared to other ferrous metals.

High tensile strength

ADI

 

  • Recent development in iron metallurgy
  • Controlled heat treatment cycle results in iron with a very high tensile strength and hardness
  • Lighter and cheaper than mild steel while possessing improved mechanical properties
  • Stronger than aluminium per unit weight
  • Excellent fatigue strength
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Good noise dampening

Excellent hardness and strength

SiMol

 

  • Silicon molybdenum alloy iron
  • Resists oxidisation at high temperature
  • It is frequently used for turbine housings and exhaust manifolds in modern high performance engines

Perfect for high temperatures

Ni Resist

 

  • Nickel alloy iron
  • Resistant to oxidisation at high temperatures
  • Resistant to corrosion in harsh chemical environments

Corrosion resistant
