Ni-Resist Austenitic Cast Iron Alloys There are two families of Ni-Resist austenitic cast irons. These are the standard or flake graphite alloys and the ductile or spheroidal graphite alloys. As time passes, the spheroidal grades, because of higher strength, ductility and elevated temperature properties, are becoming more prominent. The structure consists of graphite nodules in the matrix of bainitc. So these Rolls are stronger and more wear assistance with respect of S.G.I. Pearlitic Rolls and are capable of much higher hardness because S.G.I. Bainitic Accicular is more alloyed with very higher percentage of Nickel and Molybdenum than the S.G.I Pearlitic and as a result, the Accicular roll material has a Bainitic matrix.

To confirm the existence of the barrier and effect of copper addtion, ten 9-mm-thick spheroidal graphite cast iron castings were prepared with different copper contents of wt% – wt%. The samples’ as-cast microstructures included spheroidal graphite, ledeburite, and pearlite. Ductile iron, popularly known as spherodized graphite iron (SGI), is a special variety of cast iron having carbon content more than 3 wt.% and has graphite present in compact, spherical shapes. These compact spheroids hamper the continuity of the matrix much less than graphite flakes, which results in higher strength and toughness with a structure that resembles gray cast iron, thus imparting.

S.G Cast iron is defined as a high carbon containing, iron based alloy in which the graphite is present in compact, spherical shapes rather than in the shape of flakes, the latter being typical of gray cast iron. As nodular or spheroidal graphite cast iron, sometimes referred to as ductile iron, constitutes a family of cast irons in which the graphite is present in a nodular or spheroidal form. toid reaction in spheroidal graphite cast irons is made. These data are used to verify the potentialities of a previous description of the conditions for the start of the transformation during direct and reverse eutectoid reaction. At finite cooling rate as used in practical heat treatments, the direct eutectoid transformation starts.

Ductile iron, also known as ductile cast iron, nodular cast iron, spheroidal graphite iron, spheroidal graphite cast iron and SG iron, is a type of graphite-rich cast iron discovered in by Keith Millis. While most varieties of cast iron are weak in tension and brittle, ductile iron has much more impact and fatigue resistance, due to its nodular graphite inclusions.

The nodular irons typically contain from % C, % Si and up to % Mn as major constituents. Spheroidal graphite cast iron is heat treated by heating to deg.C to austenitise and held at the temp.

Compared to conventional high silicon spheroidal graphite cast irons, this cast iron distinctly higher in the resistance to Cited by: In the U.S., the terms Ductile Cast Iron, Nodular Cast Iron and SG (Spheroidal Graphite) Cast Iron are used more or less interchangeably.

There is also a range of variations on the standard SG cast iron, such as Ausferritic Ductile Iron (ADI) as defined by DIN ENaustenitic cast iron (Ni-Resist) as defined by DIN ENor Silicon.

The most applied heat treatment of spheroidal cast iron is known as austempering process. Austempering process consists of austenizing of material followed by quenching in salt bath. Characteristics of heat treatment for flake graphite cast iron and spheroidal graphite cast iron not containing Ni, Cr, Mo and other elements which affect the hardenability of cast iron were studied.

The characteristics of heat treatment for these cast irons can be summarized as follows, 1) The heat treatment characteristics of flake graphite. Gray Irons are a group of cast irons that form flake graphite during solidification, in contrast to the spheroidal graphite morphology of ductile irons.

The flake graphite in gray irons is dispersed in a matrix with a microstructure that is determined by composition and heat treatment. Spheroidal graphite cast irons with Ni (0–4˙5 mass-%) and Mn (0–0˙5 mass-%) melted by a high frequency induction furnace and cast into a Y block CO2mould with 30 mm in thickness.

From the viewpoint of heat treatment, tensile strength and hardness of SG irons become larger in the order of ferritisedcast.

Spheroidal graphite cast iron is a fancy way of saying “ductile iron.” For a full description of this material, you can visit our “What is ductile iron” page. These castings are also known as S.G.

iron castings or just S.G. iron. The fancy name “spheroidal graphite cast iron” comes from the make-up of ductile iron. This is to certify that the thesis entitled, “PROPERTY ENHANCEMENT OF SPHEROIDAL GRAPHITE CAST IRON BY HEAT TREATMENT” submitted by RANJAN MITTAL and SUNIT NANDA in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the award of Bachelor of Technology Degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela (Deemed University) is an.

Heat treatment of the cast ductile iron (graphite nodules in a ferrite matrix) consists of austenization at °C for 1–3 h (Figure ) during which the matrix becomes fully austenitic, saturated with carbon as the nodules dissolve.

The fully austenized casting is then quenched to around °C and austempered at this temperature for 1–3 h. Spheroidal Graphite (S.G) Iron is the name given to that cast –iron, where the graphite is present in the matrix in the form of spheroid or globules or nodules.

Hence it is also called as Nodular Iron and because of its exceptionally high ductility (with elongation some times as high as 22%) is also referred to as ductile iron.

Nodular iron, also known as ductile iron or spheroidal graphite iron, is cast iron in which the graphite is present as tiny balls, or spherulites, instead of graphite flakes (as in gray iron), or compacted aggregates (as in malleable iron).

The nodular irons typi-cally contain from % C, % Si and up to % Mn as major constituents. There are two types of malleable iron, blackheart and whiteheart. Malleable iron was widely used for automotive and agricultural components, pipe fittings, and valves; but since the development of spheroidal graphite ductile iron, its use has declined due to the high cost of annealing treatment, which requires expensive furnace equipment.

A preheat temperature of - °C is required for thicker and more complex ferritic grades, and the normalised, pearlitic or hardened and tempered grades may require at least °C. In cases where high welding stresses may develop a preheat of - °C may be necessary. Although remaining unchanged in shape, the graphite spheroids in Ductile Iron play a critical role in heat treatment, acting as both a source and sink for carbon.

When heated into the austenite temperature range, carbon readily diffuses from the spheroids to saturate the austenite matrix. The quenching and partitioning (Q&P) heat treatment was applied to ductile cast iron.

The wear resistance of specimens under different states was tested by reciprocating friction and wear tester. The microstructures of the matrix were characterized by optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction.

This produces castings with graphite in spheroidal form instead of flakes, known as nodular, spheroidal graphite (SG) or ductile irons (Fig.2b). Nodular irons are.
