What is Ductile Iron?
Ductile iron is an iron/carbon/silicon alloy with a nodular graphite structure that produces a strong, ductile
material. With more than double the tensile strength and much higher ductility than that of cast iron, ductile
iron pipes are simple to joint, can be laid in all weather conditions and often without the need for selected
backfill. Its high safety factor and ability to accommodate ground movement make it the ideal pipeline
material for a wide range of applications.
