Malleable Fittings are usually used to connect steel pipes. However, galvanized pipe is used with galvanized ductile fittings. Malleable cast iron fittings are the most common of the malleable fittings and are available in many different types and sizes.

What are malleable fittings?

Ductile fittings are those that are ductile. This is a physical characteristic of metals and quasi-metals or any kind of substance. We call a metal malleable if it can be easily deformed, especially by hammering or rolling, without breaking the metal. Ductility is important for forming pressed materials such as metals and plastics.

Malleable Iron Pipe Fittings

Manufacturing Process:

Malleable Iron Pipe Fittings are made using the most advanced metallurgical and machining controls. These fittings are typically made by casting and automated precision pattern extrusion. Ductility results from the metallic bonds present in most metals. The various free electrons that form during the loss of electrons emerging from the outermost electron shell layer of a metal atom cause the metal layers to slide over each other. This process gives the metal its ductility.

Buyer Consideration:

The manufacturer's name or trademark must appear on the ductile accessory.

Buyers should ensure that ductile parts contain the service name of the specified part.

Material names, such as steel, cast, malleable or ductile iron and ASTM number, are extremely important for the buyer to consider before purchasing malleable iron fittings.

The buyer should ensure that the iron is cast using the proper casting process.


Malleable iron fittings are used in a variety of applications such as steam, air, water, gas, oil and other fluids.
