Abstract

In previous chapters, low and medium alloy cast irons were considered. In those cast irons, silicon was the main alloying element, although others in small quantities were considered. However, in this chapter, cast irons with more than 10% in alloying elements will be presented, having as objective improving abrasion, corrosion and heat resistances in cast irons, as specific purposes.
