Gray iron, or grey cast iron, is a type of cast iron that has a graphitic microstructure it is named after the gray color of the fracture it forms, which is due to the presence of graphite  it is the most common cast iron and the most widely used cast material based on weight. The microstructure of cast iron can be controlled by heat treatment, but once graphite is formed, it remains pearlitic cast-iron grades consist of alternating layers of soft ferrite and hard iron carbide. Microstructure of some chromium alloyed grey cast iron three sets of ten samples each having chromium contents of 05, 15 and 25% were heat treated above the upper critical temperature, to austenitizing temperatures (800 o c, 850 o c, 900 o c) for.
