					?The tensile strength of grey cast iron, plastic and toughness are much lower than cast
steel, but it has a considerable compressive strength as same as cast steel, cast iron is
also commonly used in the worst mechanical properties. Meanwhile, the matrix of
grey cast iron mechanical properties also have some effect, the ferrite matrix of grey
cast iron graphite sheets thick, strength and hardness of the minimum, it is commonly
used for the stove parts and some low requirements to tensile strength. Pearlite matrix
of grey cast iron has small graphite, have a higher strength and hardness, the main
castings used to manufacture the more important. Ferrite pearlite matrix of a graphite
cast iron pieces is thicker than pearlitic grey cast iron, so has worse performance than
pearlitic grey cast iron. So there are many demand in industry for pearlite matrix of
grey cast iron.

Features of Grey Cast Iron:
Good casting properties, good vibration damping, good wear resistance, good
machinability and low notch sensitivity.

In China, we classified the grey cast iron degree by HT100, HT150, HT200, HT250,
HT300 and HT350. For ASTM A48, DIN 1691, ISO 185, JIS G5501 and BS1452
standards, please check the blog of Dandong Foundry.

The following is the common application for each degree of grey cast iron for your

For small loads, the friction and wear no special requirements for important castings,
such as protective cover, cover, oil pan, hand wheels, frame, floor, hammer, small
handle, etc.

Under moderate load of castings, such as the base, frame, box, knife, bed, bearing seat,
table, wheels, cover, pump, valve, pipe, flywheel, motor blocks and other

G200 and G250:
Requirements withstand greater load and a certain degree of tightness or corrosion
resistance of the more important castings such as cylinder, gear, base, flywheels, bed,
cylinder block, cylinder liner, piston, gear box, brake wheel, coupling Plate, medium
pressure valve, etc.

G300 and G350
Under high load, wear and high air tightness important castings, such as heavy
machine tools, shears, presses, automatic lathe bed, frame, frame, high-pressure
hydraulic parts, piston rings, force larger gear, Cams, bushings, large engine
crankshaft, cylinder block, cylinder liner, cylinder head, etc.
