Business / Machine Shop / Hardening: A heat-treating process for steel which increases its hardness and tensile strength and reduces its ductility. MORE

Cast Iron

Business / Machine Shop / Cast Iron: A family of alloys, containing more than 2% carbon and between 1 and 3% silicon. Cast irons are not malleable when solid and most have low ductility and poor resistance to impact loading. There are fo MORE

Impact Strength

Business / Machine Shop / Impact Strength: The ability of a material to resist shock, dependent on both strength and ductility of the material. MORE
