Cast iron has many valuable properties that make it a versatile metal that can be applied in all industries. These properties include the following:
Cast iron has a substantial fatigue strength, meaning it can withstand multiple cycles without breaking.
It has a substantial tensile strength, meaning it can bear longitudinal stress without tearing.
It’s especially malleable, meaning it can deform under pressure without rupturing.
It boasts elasticity, meaning it can return to its original dimensions after being deformed.
It’s especially ductile, meaning it can deform without fracture.
It’s especially tough, meaning it can absorb energy.
It’s especially hard, meaning it can resist indentation and abrasion.
Cast iron boasts malleability, ductility, and good tensile strength, making it ideal for use in the following applications:
Electrical equipment and fittings
Listed above are just some of the most popular applications for cast iron; the metal is by no means limited to these alone.
Sadly, it’s not possible for us to stock each and every material at all times; however, you can order items even if we don’t currently have access to the stock. Usually, we can source the material within the day, but we’ll be in touch if extended lead times present themselves. Should your selected material be unavailable, we’ll either offer an alternative or a full refund.
For most of our materials, you’re not required to settle for standard lengths, and our cast iron rounds are no exception. In order to adhere to the bespoke requirements of each and every project, we allow our customers to select the length of their selected materials. As a result, your project’s requirements won’t have to be compromised, and we can deliver exactly what you need.
To place your cast iron bar order, simply browse from the list below and select the diameter you require. Next, type in the length you need. The price displayed is the price per round bar. When you’re happy with this, enter the quantity you need and proceed to the checkout.
Although we stock a vast selection online, we have an extensive supplier network, which means we can more than likely source what you need, no matter how big or small. Simply contact us to find out more about bespoke sizes and quantities.
