What is Meehanite material?

Meehanite® metal is a family of different types of superior engineered cast irons, including nodular iron, flake graphite and white cast irons. The key to the undisputed success of Meehanite® metals is the rigid application of its patented manufacturing process.

What are the components cast iron?

cast iron, an alloy of iron that contains 2 to 4 percent carbon, along with varying amounts of silicon and manganese and traces of impurities such as sulfur and phosphorus.

Is cast iron corrosion resistant?

Cast iron is an alloy with a high carbon content (at least 1.7% and usually 3.0–3.7%), making it relatively resistant to corrosion.

What is Meehanite iron?

Meehanite GB300 is a pearlitic gray cast iron that has a minimum tensile strength of 300 MPa (44 ksi), when determined on test pieces machined from separately cast, 30 mm (1.2 in.) diameter test bars. This grade exhibits high strength while still maintaining good thermal conductivity and good machinability.

Can you weld Meehanite?

In fact, the oxy-acetylene process, using the correct filler rods and fluxes can produce a weld in Meehanite Metal, which is completely indistinguishable from the part being welded from the stand- point of structure, color and physical properties.

What is the difference between cast iron and steel?

The main difference between the two elements is that steel is produced from iron ore and scrap metals, and is called an alloy of iron, with controlled carbon . Whereas, around 4% of carbon in iron makes it cast iron, and less than 2% of carbon makes it steel.

Is cast iron black or silver?

Many people think of cast iron as being black in color, but cast iron actually begins its life the metallic gray color you associate with silver or stainless steel. For those of you who order a bare Stargazer skillet, you’ll see it arrive in this gray color.

Which type of cast iron is the most commonly used?

Grey cast iron
Grey cast iron is characterised by its graphitic microstructure, which causes fractures of the material to have a grey appearance. It is the most commonly used cast iron and the most widely used cast material based on weight.

What is the difference between cast iron and cast steel?

Cast iron is a ferrous material containing more than 2% carbon. On the other hand, Cast steel contains less than 2% carbon. So composition-wise the main difference is the amount of carbon present in cast iron and steel.

What is a Meehanite® cast iron?

No matter where in the world you are or what language is used; “Meehanite®” is synonymous with High Quality Castings. Meehanite® metal is a family of different types of superior engineered cast irons, including nodular iron, flake graphite and white cast irons.

What is Meehanite®?

Meehanite® is the registered name trade name of a family of cast ferrous materials manufactured under rigid metallurgical control… The dense, fine grain structure of Meehanite® metal which assures casting solidity and consistent physical properties relate the carbide stability…

Where are Meehanite® foundries located?
