Steel: tensile strength



Nikal is lustrous silver- white with golden tinges on surface. It is ductile and hard which belongs to the transition metal.  It has a significant property that when it is in powdered form reaction may occur on the exposed surface and whereas the large piece of nikal are slow to react with atmosphere as with air in the ambient conditions because it forms the oxide on surface. This oxide protects this metal to react further with the environmental condition.

Steel a metal that looks elegant, but the way it looks is not the way it behaves. Steel is a very strong metal. Steel has many application and usage. Steel is a mixture of iron and carbon. Other elements like  manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, and traces of oxygen, nitrogen and aluminum are also added up in the mixture to produce steel.  Carbon is mixed in the mixture to harden the alloy. However, if we will add more carbon than the alloy will become less ductile. It has been in use from thousand years. Steel is used for making a number of products. Today from top to bottom steel products are used. There are many historical monuments where steel is used like skyscraper, world trade center.  Steel has a long history, despite it has been in use from thousand years, but it came into proper use in 17th century when efficient methods were devised.


Crucible steel:  Crucible Steel is made by the mixture of molten wrought iron, charcoal, and other substances in a crucible.

Carbon steel: Carbon steel is steel in which the main element is carbon in the range of 0.12% to 2.0%.


Spring steel:  Spring steel is a low-alloy, medium carbon steel with very high yield strength.

Alloy steel:  Alloy steel is steel in which variety of elements is mixed in the range of 1.0% to 50%.


Maraging steel:  Maraging steel is steel which is known for its superior strength and toughness without losing malleability. Maraging steel does not have good cutting edges.

Weathering steel: weathering steel is steel that remains rust free even when exposed to weather for long period.



Tool Steel: Tool steel is alloy that is used for making tools. This type of steel is very tough and has ability to hold good cutting edges.



Stainless steel: stainless steel the most common used steel. Stainless steel is also known as inox steel. Stainless still does not catches rust even when exposed to water for long time.

Stainless steel has a wide variety of application we can find steel everywhere due to its resistance to corrosion and staining. Stainless steel has low maintenance cost. General application of stainless steel includes home appliances, surgical equipment, in automobile industry, civil engineering etc.


Steel is also used for production of several other specified things are:

Metric tube and fitting, Union Parts, BSP fitting and flanges, ball valves-BSP, Triclamp and Butt-weld. Actuators, Mount Kits, switch boxes, Tasaalini Butterfly Valves etc.


The discovery of steel has revolutionized the whole World. Steel industry is a big industry itself companies like nikal steels are manufacturing high quality steel and making good money. They have also increased the employment as well.
