    1. As concerns the technical characteristics, the investigation demonstrated that ductile cast iron, in contrast to grey cast iron, has technical properties that allow the material to resist higher rupture stress and, more importantly, to be deformed to a significantly higher extent under compressive stress without fracture, i.e. ductile cast iron possesses plastic ductility whereas grey cast iron breaks under compressive stress, i.e. is brittle.
