    Can Cast iron be used to make ISO Roller chain sprockets?

    I'm looking to manufacture roller chain sprockets from cast iron instead of mild steel.

    1. Is doing this technically beneficial?
    2. Will the life of sprocket be same as that obtained from mild steel?

    The main reasons for swithcing over to cast iron are my ease to access to cast iron and cost considerations.

    1. It is possible to manufacture the sprokets from C.I. instead of M.S.

    Life of the sproket is less than that of made by Mild Steel because of Strength of C.I is less than M.S.
