Steel is a hard, strong grey alloy manufactured by combining essential ingredients with iron and various elements. It is produced by melting raw materials, such as iron ore, coal, and lime, in a blast furnace that removes impurities. It provides various benefits, including improved flexibility, tensile strength, anti-corrosion properties, toughness, design, ductility, and malleability, and enhances overall shelf life. As a result, steel finds extensive applications across manufacturing, automotive, mechanical equipment, metal, transport, domestic appliances, electrical equipment, buildings, and construction industries.
