Our advice for improved properties like tensile strength and elongation

You can improve mechanical properties such as elongation and yield strength with a new range of high performance cast iron grades: SSF (Solution Strengthened Ferritic) iron has significantly better mechanical properties than traditional GJS 500 – 700.

Elkem is at the forefront of this development and can provide you with proven metal treatment solutions for these new grades.
