What is Malleable cast iron?

Malleable cast iron has some differences with ductile iron, although it has many similar properties with ductile iron, and it can be replaced by ductile iron in some applications. Malleable cast iron is produced from white cast iron, which is made from hot liquid iron with certain chemical components. The white cast iron needs to be treated by malleablizing, such as graphitizing or oxidation and decarbonization, then its metallographic structures or chemical components will be changed, so can become into malleable cast iron.
