Ni Resist Cast Iron


Ni Resist castings can be specified in either a Grey Cast Iron base
material or a SG Iron – Ductile Iron based material. These materials
have been developed to offer good resistance to sea water and alkaline
corrosion, scaling resistance, thermal expansion, frictional wear,
oxidation, structural stability, cryogenic applications and erosion.

SG Iron - Ductile Iron based material has the addition of certain alloys
that enhance the performance of the material. Ni is the predominant Materials Produced at
BAS Castings
addition element of between 18 and 37%. Ni Resist can also be used for
applications were non magnetisable features are required. Cast Iron - Grey Iron
Ductile Iron - SG Iron
Austempempered Ductile Iron
The benefits of Ni Resist Cast Iron are: Ni-Resist
Ni-Hard - Chrome Irons
Cost Compacted Graphite
High silicon molybdenum
When compared to stainless steel castings, Ni Resist castings can offer
price advantages. Ni Resist castings are lighter than stainless steel
castings. They can be cast near to final shape.

Machining
Ni Resist is easier to machine than stainless steel. Machining allowances
are lower on Ni Resist castings when compared to stainless steel.

Weight
Ni Resist castings will weigh less than stainless steel castings.

Castability
As with Grey Cast Iron and SG Cast Iron, Ni Resist castings offer all of the design benefits associated with Iron
Castings. Complex shapes can be accommodated, excellent surface finish will be achieved and complex designs
can be undertaken.
