Founding - Low-alloyed ferritic spheroidal graphite cast irons for elevated temperature applications
This European Standard defines the grades and the corresponding requirements for low-alloyed ferritic spheroidal graphite cast irons for elevated temperature applications.
These requirements are specified in terms of
- chemical composition: as given for each of the grades,
- graphite form and matrix structure: spheroidal graphite in a predominantly ferritic matrix,
- mechanical properties measured on machined test pieces prepared from cast samples.
This European Standard does not cover technical delivery conditions for iron castings, see EN 1559-1  and EN 1559-3 .
