ASTM A48 CLASS 50 Gray Cast Iron

 

ASTM A48 CLASS 50 Standard gray iron test bars, as cast, required 1638 kg transverse load on test bar.

Honestly, our Dandong Foundry can not produce this material grade for now, so just sharing this material specification for reference.

As for normal grey iron, the chemical composition is not important comparatively. The iron foundries could adjust the compositions according to their experience as long as they could meet the physical and mechanical requirements.
