It has been proved that an addition of Fe-Ti an inoculant to the chromium cast iron changes the structure of castings. The said operation increases the number of crystallization nuclei for dendrites of the primary austenite. In this case, the TiC act as substrates for the nucleation of primary austenite due to a similar crystallographic lattice. The more numerous are the dendrites of primary austenite and the structure more refined and the mechanical properties higher. Castings after Fe-Ti inoculation revealed a different structure of fine grained fracture.
