Different materials react differently to external factors. The effects of water, heat or mechanical forces can influence materials differently. The suitability of a material depends on its individual properties. For this reason, a high level of care is required for the selection of materials.
Important Material Properties
There is a multitude of different material properties. The following list contains only those properties that are important for the processing of plate metal:
Carbides are formed in steel from carbon and some alloying elements. They increase the hardness and strength of the steelRead more
Elasticity is a material property that provides information about the ability of materials to withstand stress.Read more
The forgeability of steel depends on the carbon content but also on various alloying elements.Read more
