Wrought Iron Castings

While wrought iron castings are not as common as cast iron castings they do exist. The wrought iron alloy is tough, malleable, ductile, easily welded and is desirable in many cases. For a long time wrought iron was the most common form of malleable iron but the advent of modern processes have rendered it a more costly alternative for much of its historical applications. The picture of a blacksmith hammering away to make any number of components may come to mind.

Today wrought iron is mostly sought after commercially for its aesthetic appeal. The alloy boasts a grainy look that can be assimilated to that of wood. Many home owners love this look and use it for railings, gates, fences, and any number of other decor oriented widgets.
