The core microstructure will consist of Type A graphite flake, per ASTM A247, with a matrix containing a minimum of 90% pearlite. The edge or rim will have a combination of Type D and Type E graphite flake and a matrix with a mixture of ferrite and pearlite. The rim will contain as much as 5% carbides.
|Carbon||2.70 - 3.45%|
|Silicon||2.10 - 2.90%|
|Manganese||0.50 - 0.90%|
|Sulfur||0.04 - 0.1%|
Hardness values listed are minimum and maximum across the bar. Hardness values for rectangles and squares are a function of the height and width ratios and will be supplied on request.
|1.000 - 28.000||25 - 711|
GX conforms to ASTM A48 Class 40 - download the GX Class 40 Tensile Table. Tensile data from the as-cast bar in conjunction with separately cast tensile data, correlates to a Class 40 Gray Iron.
