En-gjs-600-3, Ductile Cast Iron Ggg60


Visitors: 870

EN-GJS-600-3 is a ductile cast iron grade in European standard EN 1563, which is equivalent to GGG60 in Germany standard DIN 1693. The followings are its other equivalent grades, chemical composition, mechanical properties and iron castings.

EN-GJS-600-3, GGG60 Equivalent Material Grades

This grade is equivalent to the following material grades:

ISO 1083 600-3

China QT600-3

USA ASTM A536 80-60-03

Japan JIS G5502 FCD600

Italy UNI 4544 GS600-2

France NF A32-201 FGS600-2

UK BS 2789 600/7

India IS 1865 SG600/3

Spain UNF FGE60-2

EN-GJS-600-3, GGG60 Mechanical Properties

The tensile strength is min. 600 Mpa.

The yield strength is min. 370 Mpa.

The elongation is min. 3%.

The hardness range is 180-270 BH.

There is no requirement for impact property.

EN-GJS-600-3, GGG60 Chemical Composition

C: 2.5-3.6

Si: 1.8-2.8

Mn: 0.3-0.7

P ≤0.08

S ≤0.02

The suggested chemical compositions in different standards are very different, so chemical composition is just for iron foundries to control the quality, but can not be taken as quality inspection standard. As long as the material could meet the mechanical properties, they will be taken as qualified.

EN-GJS-600-3, GGG60 Material Properties

Ductile cast iron GGG60 has high tensile strength, middle ductility and plasticity. It also has good wear resistance and shock absorption properties. So, its comprehensive material properties are very high.

Moreover, it has good casting process performance, and could be heat treated to improve the microstructure and mechanical properties.

However, there are high requirements to the mechanical properties, especially high pearlite content for heat treatment.
