Hi all ..you are talking about difference between wrought iron and cast iron but the question is difference between wrought and cast alloys(because there are wrought aluminum and cast aluminum alloys and others also)...

Wrought alloys are hammered, pressed like forged, cold worked and heat treated while cast is just a casting of the metal. The main difference between the two is the way the fibers in the steel line up. Wrought alloys are much stronger,cleaner and are more ductile.

In Low Alloy Steels Wrought alloys contain low percentages of elements; that is, alloying elements total less than about 4 pct. Casting alloys contain the same elements as wrought, but in greater amounts; for example, the silicon content in cast alloys can range up to 22 pct

Wrought alloys,have a low carbon content, but containing slag. It is a fibrous material due to the slag inclusions. This is also what gives it a "grain" resembling wood, which is visible when it is etched or bent to the point of failure. Wrought iron is tough, malleable, ductile and easily welded.
Cast alloys identify a large group of ferrous alloys, which solidify with a eutectic point and have high carbon content.

Wrought Iron is an iron alloy with very low carbon content, in comparison to steel and has fibrous inclusion. Wrought iron is tough, malleable, ductile and easily welded It require a carbon content of less than 0.1 wt% , valued for its corrosion resistance and ductility.

The difference between wrought and cast alloys is basically the difference in the amount of iron.In cast alloy iron is1 to 1.7 and in wrought iron is 1.4 to 2.7
