Effect of Inoculant on Wear Volume Loss of Gray Cast Iron: A Review


Amar B. Patil , DIEMS, Aurangabad


Inoculant, Wear Volume, Gray Cast Iron


When inoculants are added to gray cast iron small graphite particles can be formed in the complex diffusion zone around the dissolving particles. The inoculants such as ferrosilicon with RE added to the grey cast iron tensile strength and hardness decreases which helps in improving machinability at good significant hardness whereas wear volume loss increases by addition of an Inoclant. As an inoculant contains the deoxidizing agent which leads to reduce the oxygen content in the gray cast iron results changes in microstructure.
