Check out our austempered ductile iron webpage for more information. This shall not prevent the purchaser from also performing any or all of the quality and inspection requirements. The castings should be properly gated and poured using aetm and effective treatment and inoculation techniques to yield shrink free castings.

The following should be met as a minimum: During this quench an aus-ferrite microstructure is formed. Packaging and marking shall be adequate to ensure safe delivery by the carrier. Impact Test Specimens ADI is a group of materials whose mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range by a suitable choice of heat treatment, as seen in the various entries in MatWeb.

The level of Mo should be restricted to not more than 0. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by asgm ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm.

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The proper alloy composition should be determined jointly by the foundry and the heat treating source.

A heat-treated form of as-cast ductile iron, Adtm has found successful applications in a variety of industries including construction, mining, agriculture, automotive, railroad and heavy truck. Originally approved in Highly specialized in austempered ductile iron. We also ask that you refer to MatWeb’s terms of use regarding this information.


The grade of ADI is determined by the chemistry of the metal at the foundry level and the quench temperature utilized at the heat treating company.

ASTM A897-A897M-16

The amount of certain elements – specifically Cu, Ni, Mo – would be specified by the heat treater for improved heat treatability. Specimens are to be prepared unnotched to dimensions in Fig.

Increased hardenability is only required to avoid the formation of pearlite during quenching. In this case, heat treatment shall be performed in an axtm or carbon controlled environment so as to prevent carburization, decarburization, or scaling.

Ductile iron, with its relative ease of use and low cost of manufacture, has been one of the largest beneficiaries of the austempering process. In this case, either of the test specimens shown in Fig.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. In section sizes up to 1? The manufacturer s may require the purchaser to provide written agreement for any changes mutually agreed upon.

The composition reported herein does not guarantee ADI properties, nor is it mandatory. We offer highly specialized expertise in austempered ductile iron. The microstructure is uniformly formed with aus-ferrite and graphite nodules. This can be done by sectioning a casting, examining the microstructure in that section, and then comparing the results with that of a premachined test bar that has been austempered in the same furnace load.

This makes the material stronger and tougher than heat treated ductile iron.

Molybdenum Molybdenum is the asstm potent hardenability agent in ADI and may be necessary in heavy section castings to prevent the formation of pearlite. Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard ast, for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

Property Data This page displays only the text of a material data sheet. Austempered Ductile Iron can be successfully produced from ductile iron castings with a wide range of chemical compositions and con? Both tensile strength and ductility decrease as the Mo content increases beyond that required for hardenability.

The test specimens shall be made to the dimensions shown in Fig. This deterioration in properties is likely caused by the segregation of Mo to cell boundaries and the formation of carbides. However, austempering heat a8977 will tend to diminish any differences in mechanical properties.

ASTM A ADI Grade / (Grade 2)

ASTM A is an alloyed nodular iron which is heat treated to achieve the desired properties. Its strength, fatigue strength and toughness are equal or better than steel, while its damping property is five times greater than steel.
