Pig iron is a hot metal that is solidified by a pig casting machine for producing a lumpy form. It is used to manufacture castings. Castings are mainly used by the engineering sector. Pig iron is mostly found in foundries. It comprises 2% Si and 4% C. White pig iron is formed due to the combined form of carbon and is light in color. The free form of carbon contributes to the grey pig iron. Additionally, pig iron is not used for welding purposes, as it is neither ductile nor malleable. Thus, it is used in wrought iron and puddling furnaces, and steel. An intermediate product of puddling is developed further to give finers metal or refined pig iron. There are three types of pig iron available in the market currently—basic, foundry, and high purity.
