Question :What is alloy Steel?


First, what is alloy ? Such materials include at least two or more elements, wherein at least one is a metal. Relative to other components of alloy can be achieved more Specific characteristics, but is itself a steel alloy.Additional element is added to the ordinary steel iron, carbon, manganese, silicon which is formed of ordinary carbon steel, in order to improve the characteristics and performance. A typical steel has a higher strength and (or) Higher hardness and (or) greater flexibility and (or) greater corrosion resistance. Sometimes requires several additional elements, and sometimes required to achieve the properties required by alloying and heat Treatment combination. Specific types of steel used in many applications, such as bearings, gears, shafts, drills, saws, bolts, tires, vehicle, aircraft landing gear and armor plate and so on. Alloying elements include bismuth, boron, calcium, chromium, cobalt, lead, nickel, molybdenum, selenium, silicon, sulfur, tellurium, tungsten and vanadium.
