Cast steel is a more versatile material, while cast iron is more durable. The main difference between the two is the amount of carbon. Steel has more than 2% carbon, while iron contains less than one percent. The purpose of adding carbon to cast-steel is to modify the properties of the iron. This is necessary because iron by itself is a soft metal and not the choice for construction materials. Both alloys are important to metallurgy. Generally, the strength of steel is greater than that of cast iron.
