These grades are austenitic gray cast iron grades that provide good hardness, dampening, and some corrosion resistance. These grades are very brittle and cannot be welded.
|Representative Alloys||Type 2, Type 3|
|Applications||Where a combination of corrosion resistance and wear/erosion resistance is needed|
|Limitations||Non-weldable, brittle alloy|
|Typical Uses||Slurry pumping applications, Cylinder liners, pistons, bearings, glands|
|Corrosion Resistance||Good in mild acids/alkalies, sea water but fair less than stainless steels|
