The melt metal is a complex solution, which may contain for the production of high-quality grey iron a number of unsuitable elements. The molten cast iron contains areas enriched with carbon, higher amount of silicon in local areas, manganese, sulphur, and phosphorus. These elements can adversely affect the properties of the produced iron for the automotive industry. The oxygen activity, hardness, tensile strength, viscosity, chemical composition, and other physical and mechanical properties of cast iron are studied.
Key words: cast iron, carbon, hardness, oxygen activity, metallurgy, melting devices, brake disc.
