Glossary of Steel Industry TermsSteel which owes its properties chiefly to carbon without substantial amounts of other alloying elements; also known as straight carbon steel or plain carbon steel. Steel is classified as carbon
Glossary of Steel Shelving Terminology - Cisco-EagleSteel, open top boxes that attach to a shelf. Excellent small parts/item storage. Equipped with built-in stop. Shelf Capacity:The weight each shelf will bear. Capacities are calculated assuming evenly distributed loads. Shelf Clip:The component that attaches shelves to posts. The clip allows easy repositioning of shelving units in 1" increments.

Steel Founders' Society of AmericaA steel containing more than the eutectoid percentage of carbon (0.83 wt. %). Hypoeutectoid Steel. A steel containing less than the eutectoid percentage of carbon (0.83 wt. %). Hysteresis (Cooling Lag) Difference between the critical points on heating and cooling due to tendency of physical changes to lag behind temperature changes.
Steel Glossary of Termsoiled steel offers a cleaner surface than hot rolled steel, making it an attractive alternative to cold rolled steel in terms of cost if wall thickness tolerances are not as critical. Pipe Pipe is a round hollow form of steel produced to a nominal pipe size (NPS) and used in conjunction with the term "schedule" that defines the wall thickness.
Also referred to as hire rolling this glossary term refers to the practice of rolling steel as a service - typically by a firm that does not have ownership of the steel. Tonne. Unit of weight commonly used outside the USA, which refers to a metric tonne. A tonne is Steel Glossary Glossary of Terms PlattsThree ferro-alloys account for most demand:ferro-manganese, the most widely used, confers strength and hardness, as well as desulphurising and deoxidising the steel; ferro-silicon is a deoxidiser that improves steel strength, heat resistance and magnetic/electrical properties; and ferro-chrome, which is essential for making stainless steel, but is also used in other alloy steels to give
