Masteel is a global steel stockholder with years of experience in the manufacture and supply of a diverse range of different steel grades for various applications. This blog post will highlight some of the different steel products available from Masteel and their applications.
Pressure Vessel Steel
Pressure vessel steel is used throughout the oil and gas, and pharmaceutical industries, for various products including pressure vessels and boilers. These application areas are highly demanding, and the materials used are exposed to extremely high pressures, temperatures, and corrosive materials.
Typically, these steels have a good level of toughness and excellent hardenability. They are also easy to fabricate and weld, which is crucial in the production of pressure vessels due to their unique shape.
Chrome Moly Steel
Chrome Moly (Chromium Molybdenum) steel is an alloy of Chromium and Molybdenum and finds its use in the offshore, nuclear, and oil and gas industries.
The chromium provides this steel with outstanding levels of oxidation and corrosion resistance, and the molybdenum provides the steel with a high level of strength and heat resistance.
The properties of this steel product enable it to be used in extreme environments, including offshore oil rigs as they reduce any maintenance.
Stainless steel is arguably the most common type of steel available on the market. It is often known as corrosion-resistant steel as it exhibits high levels of resistance against corrosion, rust, and staining.
Due to these properties, this steel product is very low maintenance, which makes it an excellent choice for structural components, including fascias and cladding. It also has anti-bacterial qualities, making it useful for food hygiene.
Stainless steel comes in an extensive range of grades, including different levels of corrosion resistance and different strengths.
Weathering steel is also known as atmospheric corrosion resistance steel due to its high level of resistance against atmospheric elements.
A popular type of weathering steel is Corten Steel, which is well recognized for its unique appearance. When exposed to harsh atmospheres, Corten Steel grows a protective layer that is a bold orange color.
Weathering steel is typically found in harsh environments, due to the lack of maintenance required. It has also become popular for various structures and bridges due to its aesthetics.
Structural steel is mainly used in the construction industry, offshore industry, and the shipbuilding industry. These industries all require steel with an extremely high tensile strength and toughness, which is provided by this steel product.
Structural steel is also very easily fabricated, making it a versatile product.
