Steel applications




Construction: The majority of steel goes to the construction industry. Sustainable steel structures can be built quickly at a low price. Steel, in its various forms and alloys, can be designed to meet the requirements of unique projects, which allow it to be incorporated into infrastructure in all environments.

Transport: Engineering steels are wrought steels that are designed to have certain specific levels of elasticity, strength, ductility and corrosion resistance. They are used in the general engineering and manufacturing sectors, but the bulk goes to transport vehicles.

Energy: All segments of the energy sector, including nuclear, wind power, electric and natural gas, demand steel for infrastructure. Steel is also used for resource extraction, such as in offshore platforms, earth-moving and quarrying equipment, cranes and fork-lifts. Due to the demanding environments, carbon, micro-alloyed, high strength and stainless steels are all used in the production of offshore platforms and pipelines.

Packaging: Steel packaging protects goods from water, air and light exposure, and is fully recyclable. This method of storage has been around for over 200 years. Steel allows for high-speed filling and lightweight, easy to open packaging.

Appliances and Industry: About 75% of the weight of typical household appliances comes from steel. Steel is found in appliances like fridges, washing machines, ovens, microwaves, sinks, cutlery etc. Steel also accounts of many industry goods like farm vehicles and machinery, storage tanks, tools, structures, walkways, protective equipment.
