Cast Irons

Jun. 20, 2017

Iron (Fe), derives it name from the Latin word ferrum. In its pure form iron is lustrous, silvery, soft, and ductile. However, pure iron is a poor engineering material, generally not as strong as most plastics. Cast irons are based on the Fe-C system, and the solid-state transformations on which cast iron heat treatments are based are similar to those applied to steels.
