Metallurgical Expertise

The Metallurgy of steel is a function of its chemical makeup and its processing history.  Chemical elements determin aspects of the microstructure and the strength and formability of the steel.  The thermal cycles and forces applied to the steel are at least as important.  Thermo-mechanical effects determine the size and shape of individual steel crystals, or grains, and the distribution of chemical elements.
