Characteristics:

  • Free from sand marks and graphite marks
  • Good machinability due to its dense and even structure up to the deep centre of the material
  • Smooth casting surface and good precision
General Applications:-
  • Valves
  • cylinders
  • machine tools and general industrial machineries
  • automobile and transportation equipment
  • metal moulds
  • pumps
  • electrical tools
  • precision instruments
  • iron and steel work
