Alloy Cast Iron

 

cast iron containing the usual components, as well as specially introduced alloying elements, which impart to it specific properties, such as increased strength, durability, and refractoriness. Alloy cast irons are usually classified chemically (for example, nickel or chromium cast iron). In naturally alloyed cast iron the alloying additives come from the iron ore.
