Facts For Iron

Iron is one of the most abundant elements on earth making up 5% of the earth's crust. Most iron is found as iron oxides such as the minerals hematite, magnetite and taconite. It is believed that the earth's core is largely a metallic iron-nickel alloy. A small number of meteorites contain iron-nickel alloys.

Cast Iron

Cast Iron is an alloy of iron that contains 2 to 4 percent carbon. It also contains varying amounts of silicon and manganese and traces of impurities. It is made by reducing iron ore in a blast furnace. The liquid iron is cast and then remelted along with scrap and alloying elements. It can then be recast into molds for producing a variety of products. It is quite a brittle form of iron, but its load-bearing strength made it an important structural material in the 19th century. It was used in some of the earliest sky-scrapers.
