When considering the alloy specification for a cast Stainless Steel component, it is critical that the service environment in which the cast component will be deployed is taken into account. The chemical composition of the Stainless Steel alloy will determine its performance characteristics and suitability for each application. At NovaCast, we supply a wide variety … Read more
GREY CAST IRON EN-GJL-200
Grey Iron EN-GJL-200 is a type of cast iron that has a graphite microstructure. It is named after the grey colour of the fracture it forms, which is due to the presence of graphite. It is the most common cast iron and the most widely used cast material based on weight.
It is used for housings where the stiffness of the component is more important than its tensile strength, such as internal combustion engine cylinder blocks, pump housings, valve bodies, electrical boxes, and decorative castings. Grey iron also has very good damping capacity, hence its use as the base for machine tool mountings.
