In the 1800s, the United States began a revolution on the framework of the country. Bridges, buildings, piping, and transportation all became privy to the innovations of steel. 
Most people have never been on a cross-country road trip, and as such you might not be aware of all the wonders to be seen in America.
All steel is not created equal. There are several different types of steel, including carbon steel, steel alloys, and stainless steel. Each of these have uses in different applications, and they are rated based on that application. Grading stainless steel falls to two different (and completely separate) organizations depending on how the steel will be...
The fact that railway tracks can be reused in a number of ways might be a surprise to some, but those who understand the critical role that steel has played in the development of railroad track know that this is some of the strongest steel available.
Steel is renowned for its durability, hardness, and toughness. Frequently referred to as the “strongest alloy on Earth”, this versatile materials is technically a blend of iron and carbon, instead of a pure metal makeup. Conversely, natural metal that is sourced from the Earth has a built-in malleability, making it less strong than its steel...
The space race is currently at its height, and steel is becoming a key player in the mad dash for territory control beyond Earth’s borders. Space travel is no longer a purely scientific or even a military endeavor.
While the world focuses on sustainability and recycling, the truth is that barely eight percent of plastic is recycled. That’s compared to 93% of all structural steel, recycled back into new steel products, making steel one of the most recycled materials in the world. 
Recovery is the word of the year as the steel industry comes roaring into 2021. With the third coronavirus vaccine now on the horizon, a calmer wave of steadily growing supply and demand will set the industry on the path to return to pre-pandemic levels.
You don’t have to have traveled much in the U.S. to have heard names like the Sears Tower (now known as the Willis Tower), the Empire State Building, or the Chrysler Building. These names are as ubiquitous in America as the companies with which they are related. What they have in common is that they...
Citric acid is a weak acid that occurs naturally in fruits, such as lemons and limes. Alternatively, some commercially available products have citric acid in them. Weak acids act as a buffer in acid-base chemistry and work to mitigate oxidation-reduction effects.
