Importers of steel alloys, components, and products need to understand the different types of steel, their properties, and their common applications. Therefore, in this video series, we will explore the various benefits and drawbacks of the different steel grades.
Unsure which steel grade your supplier is using?
Need to select a steel type for your products, but as yet undecided?
These videos will help you gain a far better understanding of common steel alloys, like carbon, alloy, and stainless.
How To Test Steel Alloy Quality?
Importers need to conduct physical tests and also chemical analysis in order to assure steel quality.
- Tensile test (applying tension until failure)
- Hardness (or durometry) test, which can be done in different ways
Chemical analysis is usually done with an X-ray fluorescence tester.
