The main factors affecting the mechanical properties of compacted graphite irons both at room temperatures and at elevated temperatures are composition, structure (nodularity and matrix), and section size. This article presents a comparison between some properties of flake graphite (FG), compacted graphite (CG), and spheroidal graphite (SG) irons in a table. It discusses the effects of composition, structure, and section size on the mechanical properties of compacted graphite irons. The compressive and shear properties, modulus of elasticity, impact properties, fatigue strength, and elevated-temperature properties of compacted graphite irons are also reviewed.
