What is Ductile Iron Used For? (Applications)
Ductile iron is great for use where you need strong metal with wear resistance.
Here is a sample list of things made from or contain ductile iron:
Pipe and pipe fittings (almost 50% of ductile iron sold in the US is for pipe and fittings)
Connecting rods (like in engines)
Disc brake calipers
Gears and Gear Boxes
Housings and manifolds
Piano Harps (the part that holds the strings of a piano)
Suspension system parts
Valves (especially high-pressure valves)
Yokes for power transmission
What is the difference between Ductile Iron and Cast Iron?
Cast iron refers to all iron parts that are cast and have a high carbon content, but in normal usage, “cast iron” refers to gray iron, the cast parts with weaker iron structures containing graphite flakes. Ductile iron must specifically have the spherical graphite structure in the metal.
Regular cast iron can be cast cheaply, machined very easily, and strength can be added through heat treating. Gray iron lacks the strength and durability of ductile cast iron. Ductile iron castings are not much more expensive than gray iron castings yet if there is no need for the benefits of ductile iron you should probably stick with the gray iron castings.
If you were to do a chemical analysis of ductile iron, this is what you would normally find:
Carbon 3.2 – 3.60%
Silicon 2.2 – 2.8%
Manganese 0.1 – 0.2%
Magnesium 0.03 – 0.04%
Phosphorus 0.005 – 0.04%
Sulfur 0.005 – 0.02%
Copper <= 0.40%
To improve the strength of ductile iron, additional tin or copper can be added. To improve corrosion resistance, copper, nickel, or chromium can replace anywhere from 15-30% of the iron.
