Pig iron is fashioned from the initial smelting of iron ore. The liquid derived from the blast furnace is then drained off into moulds. Pig iron is either sand or machine-cast. The former process sees sand fused into the surface resulting in more slag in the melting. The latter is produced in steel forms and has a fine-grained structure which is associated with a lower melting point.

Iron ore is derived from rocks and minerals and is mixed with other elements. It is a raw material that is used to make pig iron which in itself is one of the primary materials that is relied upon to make steel. Via a series of industrial processes that utilise state of the art technology, iron ore is processed and is primarily used in the transport, construction and energy Industries.
Steam coal (also known in the trade as thermal coal) is burnt to generate electricity via steam whilst coking coal (also known as metallurgical coal) is burnt at incredibly high temperatures in a bid to fashion steel.
Hot and Cold Rolled Coil/Sheet
The creation of hot rolled steel coil is the initial procedure to formulate steel slab. After the first mill and subsequent finish mill, the thickness will lower and finally produce hot rolled coil. Conversely, cold rolled sheet is flattened at room temperature via a technique that produces steel sheet that is robust, smooth and thin but less pliable than its hot-rolled counterpart.
Steel billets are the second stage product in the steel production process. They are the by-product of melting scrap iron or iron ore and are used for further stages of metal casting and their final products tend to be utilised in the guise of deformed steel rods, wires and other steel products.
Wire rods are a finished product rolled from the billet in a wire rod mill and are primarily used to produce steel wire. Ordinarily the steel wire is then processed further and deployed in the production of items such as springs, automobile parts and wire ropes.
Steel slabs are a semi-finished steel product and are used as the starting material in the production of various flat products such as steel plates or hot rolled coils. Slabs are flat in form and rectangular in shape.
Deformed Steel Bars
Deformed bars are made of steel with a distortion on their surface that is specifically fabricated to assist with reducing slippage when installing into concrete, by generating a welcome increase in the bond for the two materials. Owing to its malleability, it is widely used in construction.
Hot Dipped Galvanized Coil/Sheet
Hot Dipped Galvanized Steel Sheet in Coil is the process that sees a zinc coating being applied to cold rolled steel strip by submersing the material in molten zinc. This then prevents rusting hence why said material is often used for cladding, roofing, garage doors and automobile parts.
