What Is Cast Iron?

Cast iron is a grade of ferrous metal used in a wide range of items including drain pipes, gutters and machinery.

As its name implies, this is iron which has been heated and poured into a cast mould to form a specific shape.

Cast iron tends to be brittle so it’s important to handle this metal with care when scrapping it.
