This research work concerns an assessment of the effect of one step inoculation method on thin section castings (2-5) mm analyzed. In this study inoculants representing Ce, Zr and Sr bearing Fe-Si alloys were used. It has been observed that section thickness of 2 mm thin plate containing Ce bearing Fe-Si alloys at 0.4wt% contain mainly pearlitic matrix having microhardness (HV20), ultimate tensile strength (UTS) and percentage of elongation are 272 HV, 720 MPa and 4.5% respectively. It was observed that wear of 2 mm section thickness of thin plate containing Ce bearing Fe-Si alloys have greater wear resistance (272HV) compare to Zr bearing Fe-Si alloys (262HV) and Sr bearing Fe-Si alloys (259HV) respectively at 0.4wt% due to reason of pearlitic and ferritic volume fraction contents present in matrix.
