BS EN 16079. Founding. Compacted (vermicular) graphite cast irons

Status : Current, Draft for public comment   Published : December 2020



This document defines the grades and the corresponding requirements for compacted (vermicular) graphite cast irons. This document specifies 4 grades of compacted (vermicular) graphite cast iron by a classification based on the minimum mechanical properties measured on machined test pieces prepared from cast samples or samples cut from a casting. This document does not cover technical delivery conditions for iron castings (see EN 1559-1 [1] and EN 1559-3 [2]).
