Grey cast iron
Cast iron with a high carbon content is referred to as grey cast iron since the carbon is present in the form of graphite flakes giving rise to a grey colour when viewed. This form of cast iron has several technologically useful properties such as good machinability, low melting temperature, good wear resistance and good mould reproduction.
