EN-GJN-HV600 (XCr23) is a cast iron with a structure consisting of complex carbides. In the tempered conditions the matrix is mostly martensitic with partially austenite or other austenitic modifications. The material is comparable with DIN-materials G-X 260Cr 27 und G-X 300 CrMo 27 1 acc. DIN 1695 : 1981-09 (invalid). Acc. to DIN: the materials are characterised by a high wear resistance and higher impact strength. The wear resistance increases with the carbon content, while the impact strength decreases. The machinability of material under annealed conditions depends on the carbon content. The material has a good hardening behaviour. Cast parts made of cast iron with a high content on chromium are delivered under unfinished casting or heat treated conditions.

This material data has been provided by WIAM.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
