Steel Grades and Properties

According to the World Steel Association, there are over 3,500 different grades of steel, encompassing unique physical, chemical, and environmental properties. In essence, steel is composed of iron and carbon, although it is the amount of carbon, as well as the level of impurities and additional alloying elements that determine the properties of each steel grade. The carbon content in steel can range from 0.1-1.5%, but the most widely used grades of steel contain only 0.1-0.25% carbon. Elements such as manganese, phosphorus, and sulfur are found in all grades of steel, but, whereas manganese provides beneficial effects, phosphorus and sulfur are deleterious to steel's strength and durability.

Differences between Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel Pipe

Steel is an alloy made out of iron and carbon. The carbon percentage can vary depending on the grade, and mostly it is between 0.2% and 2.1% by weight. Though carbon is the main alloying material for iron some other elements like Tungsten, chromium, manganese can also be used for the purpose. Different types and amounts of alloying element used determine the hardness, ductility and tensile strength of steel. While in Carbon Steel, Carbon as the main alloying element. In carbon steel, the properties are mainly defined by the amount of carbon it has. For this alloy, the amounts of other alloying elements like chromium, manganese, cobalt, tungsten are not defined.

High Carbon Steel Properties and Uses

Steel is one of the most important construction metals in the world. While this is common knowledge, many people do not understand the difference between high carbon steel and other types of steel. Like any other specific type of steel, the high carbon version of this medal not only has specific properties unique to itself, but also boasts both unique advantages and disadvantages when compared to other types of steel.

Galvanized and Type Coatings

Mechanical plating involves tumbling the items to be coated in zinc powder with glass beads and special reducing agents to bond the zinc particles to the steel surface.

Coating characteristics: The mechanical plating process is used to apply zinc or alloy coatings to fasteners and small parts. The zinc particles are in lamellar form and durability equivalent to hot dip coatings can be achieved in a uniform coating that is particularly suited to threaded fasteners and hardened TEK type screws that are unsuitable for hot dip galvanizing. These coatings are typically 15 - 20 microns thick.

The Modern Steel Manufacturing Process

Steel is the world's most popular construction material because of its unique combination of durability, workability, and cost. It's an iron alloy that contains between 0.2 and 2 percent carbon by weight. According to the World Steel Association, in 2016 global crude steel production reached a high of 1, 628.5 million tonnes. Of this, approximately three-quarters were produced using BOS plants, while EAF facilities accounted for the remaining quarter.

steel

Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon and other elements. Because of its high tensile strength and low cost, it is a major component used in buildings, infrastructure, tools, ships, automobiles, machines, appliances, and weapons. Iron is the base metal of steel. Iron is able to take on two crystalline forms (allotropic forms), body centered cubic (BCC) and face centered cubic (FCC), depending on its temperature. In the body-centred cubic arrangement, there is an iron atom in the centre of each cube, and in the face-centred cubic, there is one at the center of each of the six faces of the cube. It is the interaction of the allotropes of iron with the alloying elements, primarily carbon, that gives steel and cast iron their range of unique properties.

Galvanizing process

Galvanizing ProcessHot dip galvanizing is the process of coating iron or steel with a layer of zinc by immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of around 842 °F (450 °C). During the process, a metallurgically bonded coating is formed which protects the steel from harsh environments, whether they be external or internal. Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where corrosion resistance is needed without the cost of stainless steel and can be identified by the crystallised pattern on the surface (often called a ‘spangle’). Galvanizing is probably the most environmentally friendly process available to prevent corrosion.
