What are Types of Alloy Steel?

Our alloy steel goods are sold all across India as well as to overseas customers. Metallica also has a large inventory of alloy steel pipes, alloy steel pipe fittings, alloy steel flanges, and alloy steel valves, all of which come with full product certification. All of our alloy steel products are manufactured in India or imported from reputable mills throughout the world. Metallica is India’s largest supplier of seamless steel pipes, while not being the largest maker of alloy steel goods. We store a large quantity of carbon steel seamless pipes, alloy steel seamless pipes, and stainless steel seamless pipes to provide same-day delivery to our customers.

Types of Alloy Steel

There are 3 major types of alloy steel

High-Alloy Steel

High-alloy steels are defined by a high percentage of alloying elements. The most common high-alloy steel is stainless steel, which contains at least 12 percent chromium. Stainless steel is generally split into three basic types: martensitic, ferritic, and austenitic. Martensitic steels contain the least amount of chromium, have a high hardenability, and are typically used for cutlery. Ferritic steels contain 12 to 27 percent chromium and are often used in automobiles and industrial equipment. Austenitic steels contain high levels of nickel, carbon, manganese, or nitrogen and are often used to store corrosive liquids and mining, chemical, or pharmacy equipment.

Low-Alloy Steel

Low-alloy steels have a much lower percentage of alloying elements, usually 1 to 5 percent. These steels have very different strengths and use depending on the chosen alloy. Large diameter flanges manufacturers typically choose alloys for a specific mechanical property. The variety of potential alloys makes low-alloy steel useful for a variety of projects, including seamless rolled ring forging and studying outlet manufacturing.

High Strength Low Alloy

High strength low alloy (HSLA) steel is an alloy that provides greater atmospheric corrosion resistance and high strength. There are six different classifications of HSLA steel, with varying alloying elements used. Typically, vanadium, niobium, titanium, and copper are used to provide increased strength, and copper, chromium, phosphorus, and silicon are used to increase corrosion resistance. Due to the high strength of HSLA steels, they can often be harder to form, in some cases calcium or zirconium are added to improve formability. Chrome-moly is another common alloy steel. This material is an alloy of chromium and molybdenum, which improves hardenability, increases strength, high-temperature resistance, corrosion, and oxidation resistance.
