Steel is basically an alloy of iron and carbon with a small percentage of other metals such as nickel, chromium, aluminum, cobalt, molybdenum, tungsten etc. Steel is a hard ductile and malleable solid and is...
There are two different iron oxides that abound: Iron(II,III) oxide (Fe3O4)and the far more common Iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3). Iron (III) oxide is commonly known as rust. Due to iron’s paramagnetic properties iron it...
Molybdenum is mainly used in the manufacture of steel and metal alloys. The very high melting point of Molybdenum makes it an essential part of manufacturing industries.
Alloy Steels contain a mixture of different metals, but what is the point and how can these be used?
Steel is one of the most widely used metals in the world. You may think that it is only a fairly recent invention but in actual fact the origins of steel go back thousands of years into the past.
Stainless steel is an iron based alloy. It is a strong alloy that is resistant to corrosion and rusting. It has many uses and is ideal for cookware. Read on to know more.
Corrosion is a phenomenon in which the surface of a metal is destroyed due to certain external factors which thin it down, make it loose its strength and luster, and make it fragile. Corrosion is a very common...
Welding is a process which involves joining of two materials using metals and thermoplastic. There are basically three types of welding: Arc welding MIG welding TIC welding These are further divided into...
