Austempered Ductile Iron Castings Properties

ADI is a group of materials whose mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range by a suitable choice of heat treatment. A high austempering temperature, 750F (400°C), produces ADI with high ductility, a yield strength in the range of 500 MPa with good fatigue and impact strength. These grades of ADI also respond well to a surface strain transformation which greatly increases their bending fatigue strength. A lower transformation temperature, 500F (260°C), results in ADI with very high yield strength (1400 MPa (200 MPa)), high hardness, excellent wear resistance and contact fatigue strength. This high strength ADI has lower fatigue strength as-austempered but it can be greatly improved with the proper rolling or grinding process. Thus, through relatively simple control of the austempering conditions, ADI can be given a range of properties unequaled by any other material. Small amounts of alloying elements such as nickel, copper and molybdenum are used to produce the desired heat treated result.


Applications & Examples

The properties of ADI coupled with the cost and flexibility benefits of ductile iron castings means the potential for ADI applications is vast.

Agriculture - excellent resistance to soil wear.

Digger/Grab Teeth - high strength and wear resistance.

Industrial - wear components, pumps, etc.

Gears - for wear resistance and better vibration damping than Steel.

Construction - crushing, grading and wear components etc.

Food & Feed milling - grinding, mixing, pelletizing etc.
