Wrought Iron

We regularly get questions on wrought iron specs. Here is some information:


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 also describes modern material that has been forged and has a hammered texture. It will not have the wood grained appearance or the natural corrosion resistance.


If you want to purchase actual wrought iron, contact us and we'll be glad to help you find a supplier.
