Alloy steel is steel that is alloyed with a variety of elements in total amounts between 1.0% and 50% by weight to improve its mechanical properties. Alloy steels are broken down into two groups: low-alloy steels and high-alloy steels. Every steel is truly an alloy, but not all steels are called “alloy steels”. However, the term “alloy steel” is the standard term referring to steels with other alloying elements in addition to the carbon.
Some of these steels find uses in exotic and highly-demanding applications, such as in the turbine blades of jet engines, in spacecraft, and in nuclear reactors. Because of the ferromagnetic properties of iron, some steel alloys find important applications where their responses to magnetism are very important, including in electric motors and in transformers.
We offer a wide range of stainless steel products:
- Bar (Rounds / Hexagons / Squares)
- Tube (Round / Square / Rectangular)
