What is Ductile Iron?

Ductile Iron is a type of cast iron known for its impact and fatigue resistance, elongation, and wear resistance due to the spherical (round) graphite structures in the metal. Ductile Iron is also called ductile cast iron, spheroidal graphite cast iron, or nodular cast iron.


How Ductile Iron is Made?

Most of the magic in making ductile iron happens in the furnace with the molten iron.  You start with the iron (of course) and then add more carbon than the iron would normally be able to absorb into the structure.  Explaining the iron-carbon relationship in another way, it is like adding so much salt to your water that you reach a point no more salt will dissolve.  By the way, this is what makes ductile iron different than steel.  Steel only has as much carbon as the iron can absorb.

Silicon, Sulphur, manganese, and oxygen all do their part in the mix to help the carbon to form into spherical graphite structures as the iron cools.  This, admittedly, is an oversimplification of the process (after all, we are not training you for a metallurgical degree, though if you want one, we like the Engineering Degrees found in Wisconsin, don’t mind our geographic bias).
