What is a Steel Grade?

A “Steel Grade” is a defined chemistry that has been made and processed in a particular way. (A “Standard” specifies away of doing something. It might be a test method, a packaging method, or a delivery protocol.)

Brittle metal

Brittle metal

A material is brittle if, when subjected to stress, it fractures with little elastic deformation and without significant plastic deformation. Brittle materials absorb relatively little energy prior to fracture, even those of high strength. Breaking is often accompanied by a sharp snapping sound.

What Is a Metal Alloy?

Alloys on the other hand are man-made materials. You make them by combining a metallic element with something else. Alloys can involve combining a metal with metals, non-metals, or both.

what is aluminum foil

Aluminium foil (or aluminum foil in North America; often informally called tin foil) is aluminium prepared in thin metal leaves with a thickness less than 0.2 mm (7.9 mils); thinner gauges down to 6 micrometres (0.24 mils) are also commonly used

List of Metal Alloys From A to Z

An alloy is a material made by melting one or more metals together with other elements. This is an alphabetical list of alloys grouped according to base metal. Some alloys are listed under more than one element, since the composition of the alloy may vary such that one element is present in a higher concentration than the others.

Steel and iron

What is the difference between Iron and Steel?

The primary difference between iron and steel is that the former is a metal, whereas the latter is an alloy. Iron is simply a metal element that occurs naturally on Earth. In comparison, steel is a man-made alloy that’s made by mixing iron and carbon together

Aluminium Alloy 1050 sheet

1050 aluminium alloy

Aluminium alloy 1050 is a popular grade of aluminium for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required.
Alloy 1050 is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility and highly reflective finish.
