This article discusses the chemical composition, castability, mechanical properties at room temperature and elevated temperature, and physical properties of compacted graphite (CG) cast iron. The change in graphite morphology from the flake graphite (FG) in the base iron to the CG in the final iron is achieved by liquid treatment with different minor elements. CG irons have strength properties close to those of spheroidal graphite (SG) irons, at considerably higher elongations than those of FG iron, and with intermediate thermal conductivities. The main factors affecting the mechanical properties of CG irons both at room temperatures and at elevated temperatures...
