Typical Ni-hard type cast iron for hot strip milling rolls contains 3.37%C, 0.90% Si, 4.26%Ni, 1.87% Cr, and 0.55% Mo to crystallize a large amount of ledeburite and a small amount of graphite to achieve a good performance in hot milling of steel strip. Nb, Ta and V up to 2.0 mass % were added to the cast iron to distribute harder MC type carbides in the martensitic matrix. Although higher addition of MC formers results in a higher amount of MC carbides, the chemical composition should be adjusted to crystallize graphite and to suppress the formation of hyper-eutectic carbides which cause macro-segregation in a centrifugal casting. The crystallization of cast iron specimens with Nb-V and Ta-V proceeds in the order of primary γ, γ+MC, γ+M3C and γ+ graphite eutectic. The influence of alloying elements on the graphite formation is estimated by their effects on solubility limit of C to the molten iron. The element which decreases the solubility limit, promotes the graphite formation tendency. A simple mixing rule is applied to the evaluation of the total effect of alloy elements.
