Proper inovulation assures that enough nucleation sites are formed to precipitate graphite flakes sized and configured to satisfy the metallurgical requirements of the iron alloy being cast.
The graphite, up to this precipitation point, has been dissolved in the molten gray iron as elemental carbon, but the introduction of the inoculant facilitates the carbon coming out of solution as graphite when the eutectic freezing point is reached as the metal cools.
Graphite flakes have a weakening effect on iron stregth.
The graphite structures of gray and ductile cast irons significantly affect the physical properties of these metals.
