Gray vs. ductile iron
Continuous cast gray iron and ductile iron are ideal metals for different applications. Gray iron contains graphite flakes in its microstructure, while ductile iron has graphite clusters. The flakes in gray iron lead to lower tensile strength and elongation, making gray iron ideal for metal bearings and the hydraulics industry.
The graphite nodules in ductile iron lend themselves well to moving parts. Ductile iron is more malleable and impact resistant, commonly used in machinery. From a single, small order of gray iron to a large, repeat order of ductile iron, depend on American Iron for fast turnaround at the best prices. If you need a custom-machined component, our CNC shop lets us save you time and money by shipping the finished part straight to you.
