Cast Iron Gears

All types of cast iron, from gray to ductile, reduce noise because of the inherent damping properties of the metal.

Gears that are subject to high impact forces may not be suitable for ductile iron. Converting to ductile iron is not recommended in cases where added strength is required because of fatigue failures.
