The advantages of cast iron, an essential engineering material, are good castability, machinability, and moderate mechanical characteristics.
However, white cast iron is a form of cast iron that has a reduced carbon content and better tensile strength. These white iron castings have very good wear resistance and great compressive strength. They frequently appear in wear-resistant applications like mining, agriculture, crushers, crusher liners, cylinders, shell liners for digging buckets, pumps, impellers, various automobiles, ground engagement, GET, Floor Engaging Tools, industrial machinery parts, underground and surface mining equipment, earth moving industry, and corrosive mining components.
White iron is very brittle and hard. The microstructure of the object holds the key. The Pearlitic or martensitic matrix is covered by a dense continuous network of carbides that form the microstructure. This carbide network is very rigid and doesn’t bend easily under plastic pressure. This is the primary cause of white cast iron’s hardness and brittleness. When a microcrack forms inside a carbide network, it flows instantly, and no other microcracks form. This explains why the cracked surface of white cast iron looks white
White Iron Casting – The casting technique is most frequently used to create cast iron. The mechanical working is used in other production processes. Cast iron cannot be shaped in solid form because it is very brittle and rigid. Casting material in a certain shape is the only technique to shape white cast iron.
Due to the casting production process, white cast iron is non-porous. White iron’s polished enamel gives the surface an incredibly dazzling appearance. The lack of surface porosity and the flat surface makes it possible for stains to be easily removed since they don’t adhere to the fabric. The surface is rather easily cleanable.
Precision casting also faces a cost of molding and time. Each casting producing, requires a mold and one wax pattern. It will take more time and separate costs. So it is not a good cost-effective for low quantity products, especially for B2B.
