    304 Stainless Steel

    Perhaps, you know that there are many kinds of steel depending on the alloying chemical used in it. One of them, as you are also likely to know, is the stainless steel. But that is not all: you may find it confusing that the stainless steel itself could be divided into different sub-types. For example, that could be the so called 304 stainless steel, 316 stainless steel etc. Unfortunately, all of them could not be mentioned within the compass of just one article since there is a lot to say about each of them. That is why, in this article...

    316l Stainless Steel

    You are very likely to know that there are many kinds of stainless steel. Yes, that should not surprise anybody since the stainless steel is a material having plenty of usages: it could be used in construction works, in the electricity transport and even in the jewelry industry. For example, if you ask a jeweler what a stainless steel rope is, he or she is not very likely to answer. But if you ask the very same jeweler what a 316l stainless steel is, you should have no doubts that you will get an instant and exhaustive answer. It is...

    316 Stainless Steel

    You are likely to have heard that there are different kinds of steels and one of them is the stainless steel, which is also considered to be the most used one. However, you would probably be extremely fascinated to learn that the stainless steel itself could also be ‘split’ into a couple of sub-categories- 304 stainless steel 316 stainless steel. Mentioning both of them is not accidentally since when the 316 stainless steel is mentioned, it is usually compared with its ‘older cousin’- the 304 type. However, this article is going to be different and will inform you about the...

Rusting is a problem which could not possibly occur but stuff like dirtiness, fingerprints, mud and others make it very difficult to master the art of knowing how to clean stainless steel. If you have also encountered with this problem...

    Duplex Stainless Steel

    More Durable Forms of Steel Duplex stainless steel is popular due its high strength and durability. It is used mostly in construction and other industries that demand high strength steel. The nature of duplex stainless steel is due to the two-phase microstructure of the grains within the stainless steel. This alignment of molecules also gives it a more attractive sheen than normal stainless steel. Duplex stainless steel has twice the tensile strength of normal stainless steel and can withstand much more force than average stainless steel. Toughness and ductility is also much higher in duplex stainless steel. Corrosion is also an...

    High Carbon Steel

    You certainly know that steel could be divided by using many criteria like: content of the alloy, usage, importance and so on. However, there should not be any doubt that one of the most spread criterion used for dividing the steel into several types is the carbon content in steel. According to that criterion, there are several types of steel: low carbon steel, medium-carbon steel, high carbon steel and very high carbon steel. There is no need to say that each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages which make it appropriate in using in a particular purpose and...

    One of the technologies that made the greatest impact on our society would be the refining of the iron through the iron and steel industry. Iron is used in many products, particularly commercial, carbon-rich iron, also called steel. Everything from cars and trains to bridges and skyscrapers depend on steel and iron to be built strong and durable. The iron and steel industry turns iron ore, the naturally occurring form of iron, into steel as well as many different kinds of iron. One of the older types of iron used was wrought iron, which is pure iron together with iron...

    Low Carbon Steel

    One of the commonest of steel types in most general usage is low carbon steel. This is because it is cheaper than most types of steel and in general is used when a large volume of steel is required for structural purposes. The carbon content is in the range of 0.05% to 0.30%. It also has a manganese content of a range of 0.40 to 1.5%. It is most suitable for the manufacture of a range of goods and very often is found in sheets flat-rolled or in strips of steel. Costs being a factor in...

    Mechanical Properties Of Steel

    Steel is a widely used alloy due to its nature. Steel is used in building construction and for mechanical purposes. Steel comes in a variety of different forms. Each form is created by mixing different alloys and metals into the microstructure of steel. By adding other materials to steel the mechanical properties of steel such as hardness, stress and even elasticity is increased. The microstructure of steel is the reason why it is popular among stress related scenarios. Steel can withstand large amounts of stress before it becomes deformed. Due to this it is ideal for the skeleton of buildings....

    Stainless Steel Furniture

    Furniture for the inside of a house is much easier to buy than furniture that goes on the outside, such as on a patio, a deck or a garden.

    Stainless Steel Grades

    A lot of information could be given about the stainless steel grades. However, it would not be accurate at all if it is not mentioned at first place that the grades made of stainless steel could be divided into several types: 200 Series, 300 Series, 400 Series and 600 Series. Although all of them have pretty much in common, there are also differences which certainly need to be pointed out. So let’s start with the 200 Series. There is really much to say about them but the most important is that the so called stainless steel grades 200 are not...

    Stainless Steel Grill

    Grills are not a piece of equipment which is popular all over the world. For example, there are very few amongst the European and Asian households which have their own grills for grilling meat (steaks, hot-dogs or whatever else).
