From bridges to smartphones, steel has become the world’s most important structural material and is used in every aspect of our lives. Over the past 20 years, modern steel has become stronger, lighter and cleaner to produce. Today, there are thousands of different steel grades, all with specific physical, chemical and environmental properties.
Steel grades are used to distinguish different types of steel based on their unique properties. Contemporary steel is broadly categorised into carbon steels and alloy steels, and are made with varying combinations of carbon, iron and other elements. Stainless steels, for example, are a type of alloy steel and are made up of 11% chromium and often combined with nickel to resist corrosion.Commonly used steels are categorised into grades by national and international standards organisations. These standards are the foundation on which engineers rely when using steel in their structures.
