On the crystallization of graphite from liquid iron-carbon-silicon Melts

Extensive SEM work was carried out on deep etched specimens to reveal the evolution of graphite shape in Fe–C–Si alloys of industrial composition during early solidification and at room temperature. The samples had various magnesium and titanium levels designed to produce graphite morphologies ranging from coarse lamellar to interdendritic lamellar to mixed compacted – spheroidal. The present findings were then integrated in previous knowledge to produce an understanding of the crystallization of lamellar, compacted and spheroidal graphite.
