High Chromium White Cast Iron (High Cr White Iron)

High Chromium White Cast Iron, or High Cr White Iron, grades are used in wear applications that require some corrosion resistance. The high chromium content offers the corrosion resistance and the fine carbides dispersed throughout provide the hardness. These grades cannot be welded.
