Compacted Graphite Cast Iron…its Properties and Production with a New Alloy

Journal: Modern Casting July 1976 P50-52
Author: M. Lalich

The unique combination of properties offered by compacted graphite cast iron gives the iron potential in a variety of applications. Frequently mentioned castings include components for the automotive, truck and farm implement industries such as brake drums, exhaust manifolds, engine blocks, heads and valve bodies. The potential of compacted graphite cast iron for ingot mold castings is also an area of particular interest. The difficult nature of process controls have, in the past, limited the success of compacted graphite irons. Current efforts with anew Mg-Ti-Ce-Ca ferrosilicon alloy have, however, shown a marked degree of initial success in several foundries.
