The effect of Titanium on the microstructure of grey iron was investigated experimentally in this work. Tensile test bars of grey cast iron of near eutectic alloys containing 0.01, 0.1, 0.26 and 0.35% Ti, respectively were made in green sand moulds.
Chemical analysis, metallographic investigation and thermal analysis of the specimens were carried out thoroughly.
An SEM and TEM study were performed in order to observe the effect of Ti on the microstructure of the alloys in smaller scale. Furthermore, the microstructure and thermal analysis are related and discussed.
