It depends on what it's being used for. Cast iron is great for engine blocks and anything that will be cast into irregular shapes, but cast iron tends to be brittle and can crack or break. Steel alloy tends to be tougher and holds up to abuse a little better. Also, cast iron is more difficult to weld.
Your question doesn't specify what the cast iron is being used for so I can't be more specific.
Iron is considerd to be an alloy steel. This is because an alloy steel is when carbon is the primary alloying element. However, wire of iron is considerd to be a non alloy.
The alloy of steel is carbon and iron.
A casting made from an iron based alloy, as in cast iron or cast steel.
steel is an ALLOY of iron and carbon!!
steel is an alloy
steel is an alloy
Steel is an alloy of carbon and iron. If the percentage of carbon is more than 2% then it is called cast iron.
alloy of aluminium is duralium and alloy of iron is steel or stainless steel
Iron alloy steel is preferred because pure iron is brittle. Iron alloy steel is much stronger than pure iron. Likewise, an alloy is more resistant than a pure metal.
Steel is itself an alloy of Iron and Carbon. Stainless steel contains Iron, Carbon and Chromium.
Almost any metal might be included in a steel alloy. The simplest alloy that is called steel is an alloy of just iron and carbon. But it is the ratio that is important (e.g. cast iron is also an alloy of just iron and carbon, but it has too much carbon making it too brittle to be steel). There are also a few nonmetals (e.g. boron, silicon) that might be included in a steel alloy.
It is steel
The most common alloy of iron is steel.
They do not alloy. Copper and tin form bronze, but do not alloy with steel or iron.
Low carbon steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, which is the basis of all steel. Low alloy steel is an alloy of iron, carbon and additional metals, like manganese or molybdenum.
It could be made of many things:cast iron - alloy of iron and carbonaluminumsteel - alloy of iron, carbon, many other metalslaminated steel and copperlaminated steel and aluminumetc.
Cast Iron does not rust or corrode as steel can
1) Cast iron is iron in its pure form whereas steel is an alloy. 2) CI is strong in compression and weak in tension. Reverse is true for steel. 3) Workability is better in the case of steel than CI because of elongation properties. 4) CI is brittle whereas steel is ductile. Dandong Foundry has issued an artile for this issue, please refer to the following link "Cast Iron vs Cast Steel".
steel is the alloy of iron and carbon , so mild steel is an ferrous alloy
Yes, all steel contains iron. Steel is an alloy, the basis of which is iron.
steel is an alloy of iron and about 0.1%-0.3% carbon. bronze is an alloy of copper+ tin....( not steel)
Steel is an alloy if iron, consisting mainly of iron. Steel is both stronger and lighter than iron so is more efficient to use in buildings and other structures.
