This quenching rate must exceed some critical value to attain the correct microstructure ausferrite or ausferrite and proeutectoid ferrite. Floor, manual, squeezer, cope and drag, Hunter, Sinto and Disa molding processes. The microstructure is uniformly formed with aus-ferrite and graphite nodules.

Another benefit of designing with ADI is the improved abrasion resistance properties. Astn test bars are to be cut from castings, test bar location shall be agreed upon by the purchaser and the manufacturer and indicated on the casting drawing.

Austempered Ductile Iron ADI offers low cost, design flexibility, good machinability, high strength-to-weight ratio and good toughness, wear resistance and fatigue strength because it can be cast like any other member of the Ductile Iron family, thus offering all the production advantages of a conventional Ductile Iron casting.

ASTM A Grade 3 () Austempered Ductile Iron

The purchaser should establish by contract agreement, at the time of ordering, the responsibility of the various parties for meeting the speci? The composition reported herein does not guarantee ADI properties, nor is it mandatory. Proper purchasing, storage and use of charge materials will minimize the occurrence of carbides and gas defects. We can provide raw castings or complete assemblies and everything in between painting, heat treat and machining.


In this case, heat treatment shall be performed in an inert or carbon controlled environment so as to prevent carburization, decarburization, or scaling.

For over 60 years, Carson Castings continues to meet your raw and machined sand and investment casting needs with ISO certified facilities. When separately cast test coupons are used, selection shall be as outlined in Increased hardenability is only required to avoid the formation of x897 during quenching.

When inadequate austempering response is identi? Acceptable quantities of martensite may be established by agreement between the manufacturer, heat treater, and the purchaser. ADI offers one of the best combinations when it comes w897 lower costs, design flexibility, machinability and strength-to-weight ratio. ADI is a group of materials whose mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range by a suitable choice of heat treatment, as seen in the various entries in MatWeb.

ASTM A is an alloyed nodular iron which is heat treated to achieve the desired properties. The chemical composition requirements may be agreed upon between the manufacturer, heat treater, and the purchaser. Subsequently it is subjected to the austempering process to produce mechanical properties that are superior to conventional ductile iron, cast and forged aluminum and many cast and forged steels.

MatWeb is intended for personal, non-commercial use.

Molybdenum Molybdenum is the most potent hardenability agent in ADI and may be necessary in heavy section castings to prevent the formation of aetm.

Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters. ADI heat treated materials exhibit mechanical properties equivalent to cast and forged steels. The amount of residual Mg plus the amounts of these elements should not exceed 0.


Austempered Ductile Iron ADI has all the advantages of a ductile iron casting plus mechanical properties which are superior to all cast irons and most steel forgings and castings, thanks to a special heat treat process. Dimensions shall conform to drawings or patterns supplied by the purchaser.

We deal strictly in the sourcing of castings and machined castings. Machining can be done before or after heat treatment. Commonly used in fabrication-to-casting conversion projects, ADI grade 2 offers mechanical performance that is often comparable to steels, without the added cost.

The properties of ADI are due to its unique matrix of acicular ferrite and carbon stabilized austenite; called Ausferrite. The purchaser should establish by contract agreement, at the time of ordering, the responsibility of the various parties for meeting the specification requirements. Any of the aforementioned nonconforming conditions will reduce the toughness of an ADI component, even if adequate for conventional ductile iron.

Excessively high levels of Si can suppress ausferrite in localized areas by stabilizing ferrite. However, this composition is a typical, industrially successful ADI composition.
