Iron Casting

Iron casting, or cast iron, is a metalworking process that produces a group of iron-carbon alloys with carbon content greater than 2%. Its usefulness derives from its relatively low melting temperature. The alloy constituents affect its color when fractured, that is, white cast iron has carbide impurities which allow cracks to pass straight through, grey cast iron has graphite flakes which deflect a passing crack and will initiate countless new cracks as the material breaks.

In the industry, cast iron is a group of iron carbon alloys with a carbon content greater than a certain level of percentage. Its worth derives from its relatively low melting temperature. The alloy constituents affect its color when fractured, that is, white cast iron has carbide impurities which allow cracks to pass straight through. On the other hand, grey cast iron has graphite flakes which deflect a passing crack, and that initiates countless new cracks as the material breaks. Furthermore, ductile cast iron has spherical graphite nodules, which stop the crack from further progressing so are considered practical.
