Steel is such a powerful element, coming in several distinct grades and holding unique chemical compositions. Now, with steel properties and the different steel alloys being so vast that most of them are composion of iron and carbon.
Stainless steel is shiny in appearance and has 10 percent to 20 percent of chromium as alloy. Using chromium as alloy prevents the steel from being corroded and enables it to mould easily into various shapes. Due to its ductility and flexibility stainless steel is best suited for home applications etc.
- It is magnetic in nature and has high resistance against temperature
- Corrosion Resistant
- Higly Durable
Carbon steel is a dull looking and matte-textured steel which is very prone to corrosion and consist of less amount of alloying elements and it is very strong.
- Highly Durable
- Highly Sustainable
- Carbon steel can get higher hardness and better wear resistance after heat treatment.
Tool steel is hard, It is scrape and heat resistant. It is generally used for making metal tools, Tool steel is made up of tungsten, cobalt and molybdenum therefore they have high heat resistance as well as durability.
- Better Hardenability
- Higer Impact strength
- Does not tend to Overheat
