Gray Iron Castings • Plymouth Foundry uses a

Gray Iron, named so because of the gray color it displays when fractured. This is primarily due to the presence of graphite within. Based on its weight, cast iron is the most widely used cast material. It is also the most common of the cast irons used. Gray iron castings offer a multitude of uses. When stiffness is more important than tensile ...

Cast iron - Wikipedia

Grey cast iron is characterised by its graphitic microstructure, which causes fractures of the material to have a grey appearance. It is the most commonly used cast iron and the most widely used cast material based on weight. Most cast irons have a chemical composition of 2.5–4.0% carbon, 1–3% silicon, and the remainder iron.

Grey Cast Iron - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Gray cast iron. Gray cast iron is a broad term used for a number of cast irons whose microstructure is characterized by the presence of flake graphite in the ferrous matrix. Such castings often contain 2.5%–4% carbon, 1%–3% silicon, and some additions of manganese ranging from 0.1% to 1.2%. This is one of the most widely used alloys of iron.

The most commonly used cast gray iron specification is ASTM A48. In order to qualify cast products according to their specifications, a standard practice is to cast a test bar along with the engineered castings. The ASTM tests are then applied to this test bar and the results are used to qualify the entire batch of castings.
