Material

  • Alloy steel is steel that has been alloyed with other materials to improve overall physical properties, such as strength, hardness, toughness, and wear resistance.
  • Bronze is a copper alloy that contains up to 10 percent tin, and has greater strength and resistance to corrosion and wear than brass. It is nonmagnetic and nonsparking, with a smooth finish.
  • Carbon steel is steel with a main alloying constituent of carbon.
  • Cast iron is a strong, brittle, non-ductile, iron-carbon alloy.
  • High-carbon steel is steel with a main alloying constituent of carbon. Compared to regular or low-carbon steel, high-carbon steel is harder and stronger, with a lower melting point.
  • Steel is a good general-purpose material.
