Austempered ductile cast iron is part of a family of heat-treated cast irons. Isothermal hardening transforms ductile cast iron into ausferritic cast iron (ADI), which has the appropriate characteristics of strength, the impact strength and fatigue resistance. ADI is more resistant per unit weight than aluminium and so resistant to wear as steel. The values of tensile strength and yield point are twice as high as values of the standard cast iron. The article presents the results of fatigue tests of the ADI cast iron with the use of load high frequency in the area of ultra-high cycle.Keywords: ADI, Ultra-high-cycle fatigue, S–N curve
