The steel industry has hundreds of years history all over the world, following the quick development of high-tech, steel have divided into all kinds of styles to satisfy different demands for almost industry. Whatever China Steel or other countries steel suppliers, having formed a relatively mature industry chain. The below we will provide you some popular steel information to help you learn the latest steel products.

Firstly, I recommend you to know angle iron better. Commonly, angle iron is known as on both sides perpendicular to each other into a corner of the bar of steel. And it is divided into equal angles and unequal angles. According to the different structure needs, angle iron can compose of a variety of different force components, and also can be used for connections between the components. Certainly, angle iron is widely used in different building structures and engineering structures such as beams, bridges, transmission towers, hoisting and conveying machinery, ships, industrial furnace, reaction tower, container frame and warehouse shelves, etc. In addition, angle iron belongs to a simple section of carbon structural steel, which is mainly used for metal components and framework of the plant.

Secondly, there is a kind of vastly using steel----steel channel, which is a cross-section of the groove-shaped strip of steel. According to different categories, steel channel is divided into different styles, for example, via the different shape, it can be divided into four kinds: Cold equilateral channel, ranging from cold-formed side channel cold-formed Lipped Channels, cold-formed outer edge channel. And the applying of steel channel is widely, generally, it mainly used for building structure, vehicle manufacturers and other industrial structure, specially, steel channel can be used in conjunction with h beam.

Thirdly, Prepainted Steel is a special steel, which is made from cold rolled steel and galvanized steel with surface chemical treatment after coating or composite organic film, then bake curing. Therefore, prepainted steel not only owns the performance of steel material high mechanical strength and easy to shape, it also has good decorative coating materials and corrosion resistance. And it respected as today’s world new materials and get more and more wide using. Usually, prepainted steel is used in building, appliances, electrical and mechanical transport, indoor decoration, office furniture and other industries.

Finally, ERW Pipe just is Electric Resistance Welding, which is different from ordinary pipe welding process, and erw pipe is is made by the parent material of the strip body melting, mechanical strength than the average pipe. Usually, ERW said resistance welding, resistance welding has high production efficiency, low cost, material saving, easy automation features, it is widely used in various industrial sectors of the aviation, aerospace, energy, electronics, automotive, light is important welding processa. And ERW Pipe is also used to transport oil, natural gas, to meet the high and low voltage requirements of the conveying pipe in the world sector accounts for a pivotal position.

Via the above some related steel product instruction, we can know that steel industry plays so important role in whole industry development. Although, now steel prices have great difference from before, the quality of steel is getting better, and all sorts of special steel products can satisfy more range demands.
