Abstract

According to the ISO 16112 standard for compacted graphite cast irons (CGIs), the graphite particles in CGIs shall be predominantly in the vermicular form when viewed on a two dimensional plane of polish. This article begins with a schematic illustration of compacted graphite microstructures with nodularity. It describes the tensile properties, hardness and compressive properties, and impact properties of CGI. The article concludes with a discussion on the fatigue strength and thermal conductivity of CGI.
