Castings are steels with more than 1% Carbon, made by casting. They are available as malleable iron castings, ductile iron castings, gray iron castings, Ingot iron and steel castings etc. The have low saturation flux density. They contain several impurities – so their magnetic properties is poor and permeability is low. Cast Iron is used in large components that require inexpensive magnetic material. They produce large core loss at line frequencies. So they are used in near DC applications.
