What is steel?
Steel is an alloy of iron with a carbon content that can range from 0.03% to 1,075% of its composition, depending on its grade.
Steel is not the same as iron and they should not be confused. Iron is a metal relatively hard and tough, with atomic diameter (dA), 2.48 Å with melting temperature of 1535°C and boiling point 2740°C.
The main difference between iron and steel lies in the carbon content: steel is iron with a carbon content between 0.03% and 1,075%.
Steel retains the metal characteristics of iron in its purest form, but the addition of carbon and other elements either metallic or non-metallic improves its physical-chemical properties, especially its resistance.
There are many types of steel according to the content of alloying elements. Each type of steel will allow different uses and applications, making it a versatile and widely used material in modern life.
What types of steel are used for furniture?
Stainless steel is a solid, silver metal comprised of steel and chromium. With a brighter luster than steel (but duller than chrome) and being extremely resistant to corrosion, rust, or stains, it is virtually indestructible and a useful metal for furniture production. Traditionally used for cutlery, stainless steel has become a regular choice for furniture thanks to its subtle deep silver hue.
Blackened steel is solid steel whose surface chemical makeup has been altered – or using powder coat, resulting in a change of color and increased resistance to corrosion. Its darkened, semi-matte finish renders it an easy upkeep metal.
