Which Type of Steel Should I Use?
Different projects require different types of material. Whether you’re having us build something or you want to build it yourself, you will still need to pick out a type of metal.
Below are some common choices:
Alloy steel is strong steel that is easy to weld. This is an ideal choice for pipelines or auto parts. If you are looking for a metal that is resistant to corrosion, alloy helps. You can also use alloy for power generators or electric motors.
There are three types of stainless steel: austenitic, ferritic and martensitic. Austenitic steels are nonmagnetic and are not heat-treatable. Most of your kitchen utensils are made of austenitic steel. Ferritic steel can be hardened by hard treatment. You will want martensitic steel for knives or surgical equipment.
Carbon steel is extremely strong. This is a great option for forging large parts for cars. You can also use high carbon steel for axles or knives.
