Cast Iron

UNDERSTANDING CAST IRON WELDING : TIPS, METHODS, AND CONSIDERATIONS

With their iron-carbon matrix similar to steels, cast irons stand out with a carbon content exceeding 2% and significant silicon content (1-3%). This chemical composition determines the resulting microstructure and enables the classification of cast irons.

However, not all cast irons are suitable for welding. Those that are weldable require specific precautions during the operation :

  • Choice of process and welding method : Selecting the appropriate welding process and method is crucial for successful cast iron welding.
  • Filler metal selection : Careful consideration must be given to choosing the right filler metals to adapt to each case of joining or repair.
  • Welding procedure : Following the correct welding procedure is essential to ensure strong and durable welds.
By adhering to these precautions, you can achieve successful cast iron welds and effectively address the challenges associated with welding this material.
