Ferrous Metals:

Cast Steel

Iron alloy with carbon up to 1.7 wt.%. Mechanical properties are generally lower than wrought steels of the same composition, but in return, more complicated products can be made in one step. Mechanical properties of cast steel are better than cast iron but the casting properties are worse. High carbon cast steels offer excellent wear resistance. Steel codes: in progress.
