The form of this agreement depends upon which of the conditions in Pouring molten grey iron metal from holding furnace into pouring ladle at a grey asgm casting company.

Packaging and marking shall be adequate to ensure safe delivery by the carrier. ADI Design Benefits Heat treating ADI involves a complicated quenching process in a liquid astk solution that is kept at a strictly controlled temperature.

ASTM A897-A897M-16

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. This quenching rate must exceed some critical value to attain the correct microstructure ausferrite or ausferrite and proeutectoid ferrite. Austempered ductile iron ADI is a strong, light and wear resistant material.

Composition guidelines are recommended in Table X1. Responsibility for meeting the speci? Austempered Ductile Iron can be successfully produced from ductile iron castings with a wide range of chemical compositions and con?

Markets that are heavy users of this technology include: Grade 1 ADI would be quenched at a higher temperature range, giving it a higher toughness with abrasion resistance. We appreciate your input.

A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. ASTM A is an alloyed nodular iron which is heat treated to achieve the desired properties. Austempered Ductile Iron ADI has all the advantages of a ductile iron casting plus mechanical properties which are superior to all cast irons and most steel forgings and castings, thanks to a special heat treat process.


Commonly used in fabrication-to-casting conversion projects, ADI grade 2 offers mechanical performance that is often comparable to steels, without the added cost. Blanks from which test specimens are machined shall be cut only from Positions Asmt or B in Fig. The purchaser should establish by contract agreement, at the time of ordering, the responsibility of the various parties for meeting the speci?

Austempered Ductile Iron ASTM A Grade 1 | Penticton Foundry

A heat-treated form of as-cast ductile iron, ADI has found successful applications in a variety of industries including construction, mining, agriculture, automotive, railroad and heavy truck. Please contact us at webmaster matweb. In this case, either of the test specimens shown in Fig. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.

Silicon Silicon is one of the most important elements in ADI because it promotes graphite formation, decreases the solubility of carbon in austenite, increases the eutectoid temperature and inhibits the formation of bainitic carbide.

The iron shall conform to the mechanical property requirements including tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, impact energy, and Brinell hardness.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Even though ADI has great abrasion resistance properties it a89 also be machined. In those cases where removal of test bars from z897 castings has been agreed upon see Single user license only.

Lower temperature quench would give it a higher strength with abrasion resistance.

This deterioration in properties is likely caused by s897 segregation of Mo to cell boundaries and the formation of carbides. Warning— Achieving the required mechanical properties and austempered microstructure in the smaller cross sections of a premachined test bar does not ensure the correct response in the heavier sections of actual parts, as explained in X1.


Because it can be cast like any other ductile iron, ADI offers all the production advantages of a conventional ductile iron casting. The contents, results, and technical data from this site may not be reproduced either electronically, photographically or substantively without permission from MatWeb, LLC.

Manganese Manganese additions above that of the base metal composition are not recommended because Mn segregates to the last to freeze regions of the casting and will retard the formation of ausferrite if the nodule count is not sufficiently high to break up the Mn segregated region.

ASTM AAM – Applied Process

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. It should be controlled as follows in Table X1. Excessively high levels will promote carbide formation while low levels promote nonspheroidal graphite. Property Data This page displays only the text of a material data sheet.

Proper molding control will minimize surface defects and other sub-surface discontinuities. The amount of certain elements – specifically Cu, Ni, Mo – would be specified by the heat treater for improved heat treatability. In case no option is expressed, the manufacturer shall make the choice.

The standard specimens for tension and Charpy impact tests are illustrated. The composition reported herein does not guarantee ADI properties, nor is it mandatory. The impact test specimens must be?

Preparation for Delivery There is no optimum recipe; however those produced to the following parameters have been shown to yield excellent results.

In some cases, the maximum acceptable quantities of these microconstituents a8997 the location s within the casting may be established by agreement between the manufacturer, heat treater, and the purchaser.
