Ductile Iron Casting

Ductile Iron Casting is our specialty. Customers who want machining capabilities know ductile iron provides higher strength than other irons without being brittle.

Our ductile iron is treated by heating the ductile to 2,750 degrees Fahrenheit and adding silicon magnesium alloys.
