Abstract: © 2017 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. The Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) represents an example of material with remarkable and unexplored properties, especially in terms of resistance and machinability. With better strength and stiffness than several cast irons, as Grey Iron, and better castability, machinability and thermal conductivity than others, as Ductile Irons, this alloy would be, at least theoretically, the perfect material choice for a wide range of practical applications. Nevertheless, discovered more than 50 years ago, it has failed to establish itself in a definitive way. This review intends to highlight benefits and limits in choosing CGI in casting.
