Austempered Ductile Iron

Austempered ductile iron is a type of ductile iron that has been modified through heat treatment. It has superior strength and ductility to ductile iron, and creates a stronger casting. Castings made from austempered ductile iron can be made with thinner cross sections, leading some customers to replace their aluminum parts with ADI because of the associated significant weight savings.

We commonly produce several grades of ADI, including:

We also pour Carbidic ADI (CADI) which has been used successfully in some wear applications.
