Steel is one of the most sought-after materials for construction and other projects. A combination of iron and other elements (primarily carbon), the material is naturally strong and durable, making it a perfect choice for a wide range of uses. However, due to the uniqueness of each project, industrial manufacturers often produce many different types of steel. They differ in properties such as strength, elasticity, thermal conductivity and hardness. These varying properties make the different types of steel ideal for the different physical and mechanical properties needed for each application.
