GG25 / EN-GJL-250

Characteristics of GG25

GG25 is the most commonly used cast iron alloy. This material offers a good combination of strength and abrasion resistance, but is still easy to machine and can be finished to a high standard. It is a lamellar cast iron with a predominantly pearlitic structure. Heat treatment to increase hardness is not recommended.

GG25 is similar to GG20, but – due to the slightly finer structure – offers a higher tensile strength. This makes it suitable for machine components that are subjected to higher mechanical stresses.
