Difference between cast iron and wrought iron
Wrought iron is iron that has been heated before being worked with tools to shape it. Wrought iron has a very low carbon content (less than 0.08%), and is characteristically fibrous in appearance, but compared to cast iron it is softer and more ductile. Wrought iron resists fatigue and has a higher tensile strength than cast iron.
