Iron Gate made with Wrought Iron
Wrought Iron is an iron alloy with a very low carbon (less than 0.08%) content in contrast to Cast Iron (2.1% to 4%).
It is a semi-fused mass of iron with fibrous slag inclusions (up to 2% by weight), which gives it a “grain” resembling wood that is visible when it is etched or bent to the point of failure. Wrought iron is tough, malleable, ductile, corrosion-resistant and easily welded. Wrought Iron is the most common form of malleable Iron. It was given the name wrought because it was hammered, rolled or otherwise worked while hot enough to expel molten slag.
