  • Cast iron melts at about 1175C - 1290C (2150F - 2360F
  • "Melting point 1811 K (1538 °C, 2800 °F) " "Cast iron contains 2—4% carbon, 1—6% silicon, and small amounts of manganese. Contaminants present in pig iron that negatively affect material properties, such as sulfur and phosphorus, have been reduced to an acceptable level. It has a melting point in the range of 1420—1470 K, which is lower than either of its two main components, and makes it the first product to be melted when carbon and iron are heated together."
