Cast iron grade for outside sculpture


In a recent meeting with a metalurgist he mentioned that there were 12 grades of iron which could be used for casting. What would be the grade(s) for outside sculpture and what distinguishes this iron?

Cast iron for sculptures should be of high chromium so as to be less corrosive, and resistant to weather conditions.
