Cast Iron

OVERVIEW

FLOCAST Cast Iron are produced via Continuous Cast method, this eliminates risk of porosity and sand inclusions that are chronic problems of local sand casting. Fine grain microstructure with thinly dispersed graphite flakes ensure utmost material rigidity, uniform density and hardness with higher tolerance to stress cracking

Tensile, yield and compressive strengths are uniform all throughout every Flocast cast iron bar and bushing. Flocast cast iron comes in 10 feet lengths with smooth surface finish that requires very minimal machining. This enables fabricators and contract manufacturers to save on time, energy and machining, further reducing the overall cost of production

TYPICAL USES

Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Piston, End Cap, Gland, Support Bearing, Control Valve, Rotor
