EN-GJS-600-3, GGG60 Mechanical Properties

The tensile strength is min. 600 Mpa.
The yield strength is min. 370 Mpa.
The elongation is min. 3%.
The hardness range is 180-270 BH.
There is no requirement for impact property.

EN-GJS-600-3, GGG60 Chemical Composition

C: 2.5-3.6
Si: 1.8-2.8
Mn: 0.3-0.7
P ≤0.08
S ≤0.02

The suggested chemical compositions in different standards are very different, so chemical composition is just for iron foundries to control the quality, but can not be taken as quality inspection standard. As long as the material could meet the mechanical properties, they will be taken as qualified.

EN-GJS-600-3, GGG60 Material Properties

Ductile cast iron GGG60 has high tensile strength, middle ductility and plasticity. It also has good wear resistance and shock absorption properties. So, its comprehensive material properties are very high.

Moreover, it has good casting process performance, and could be heat treated to improve the microstructure and mechanical properties.

However, there are high requirements to the mechanical properties, especially high pearlite content for heat treatment.
