One of the most critical metals in the engineering and construction industry is steel. Its uses in various sectors and diverse applications creates an urge in manufacturers to use the best alloyed steel suitable for their purposes. Steel that is alloyed with different elements by weight to enhance its mechanical properties and serve the purpose of the particular product manufactured is known as alloyed steel. One of the widely used products in the industry are the Alloy Steel Round Bars. It is basically a round and cylindrical metal bar stock that caters to a variety of industrial applications.
The simplest alloy steel is iron alloyed with carbon. However, the appellation of “alloy steel” refers to steels that are alloyed with elements added in addition to carbon. The most common alloyants used to complement carbon are manganese and nickel. Other alloyants that are commonly known to be found in the industry are boron, chromium and silicon. Copper and aluminium are also used as alloyants from time to time as per the requirement of demand. These elements are added to boost the properties of strength, hardness and toughness of the metal.
Some of the benefits the metallurgy of alloy steel bars has to offer are mentioned as under:
Alloy steel bars exhibit enhanced properties of tensile strength and effortless compressibility as compared to their carbon-steel equivalent. With a comparatively smaller size when compared to carbon steel, this metal finds its applications in a wide range of projects.
Automobile manufacturers are the major beneficiaries of this quality the product exhibits. Lightweight finds the metal suitable to manufacture various two-wheeler and four-wheeler car components. The reduction in weight increases the output efficiency and operability of these vehicles.
High quality alloy steel bars may be subjected to higher pressure and loads. Its capabilities of withstanding sustained and increased pressure makes it a better option when compared to the carbon-steel bars.
Alloy steel bars can be used in operations that demand extremely high temperatures and pressures. Its ability to withstand these temperatures, without an alteration in its shape, makes it suitable for heavy engineering industries and projects.
A uniformity in dissipation of heat in alloy steel bars offers an increased resistance against wear and tear of the product.
This versatile product offers features of increased durability and strength. The qualities of reliability of alloy steel bars makes it an industry favourite and finds its uses in various applications.
The properties of alloy steel bars prevent oxidation and make it less susceptible to corrosion.
The properties of enhanced hardenability of alloy steel bars makes it suitable for various engineering purposes.
Due to these enhanced qualities of alloy steel bars, they find their applications in various industries and products. They are mostly used for the manufacture of pipes used for energy related applications. Alloy steel also finds its uses in the manufacturing of heating elements such as toasters, silverware, pots and pans, and corrosion-resistant containers. Some of the other industries these products cater to are:
