Steel Alloys Decoded: Understanding Chenab’s Range of Specialized Materials

Why are steel alloys crucial to modern engineering and industrial applications?

Chenab Engineering decodes the complexities of steel alloys, Offering materials that drive innovation and sustainability across industries.

Steel is a strong and versatile metal. It is an alloy consisting of iron with a small amount of carbon and occasionally other elements. Alloy steel is a type of steel with alloying elements other than carbon added to improve its properties. Some of the common additions to alloy steel include carbon, manganese, chromium, molybdenum, or nickel. The addition of these elements enhances the steel’s strength, ductility, and corrosion resistance,  making it suitable for various industrial applications. 

Chenab Engineering offers a large range of steel alloys each designed to satisfy distinct industrial requirements. Chenab Engineering has emerged as a leader in this domain by providing a wide variety of specific steel alloys that meet international standards and deliver exceptional performance.

Range of Steel Alloys Offered by Chenab Engineering

Chenab Engineering offers a large range of Steel Alloys, each designed to meet distinct industrial needs. Following are some types of steel alloy:

  • Low Alloy Steels 

Low alloy steel is a kind of steel that has less than 8% alloying elements like chromium, nickel molybdenum, vanadium, etc. In comparison to ordinary carbon steel, low alloy steel has stronger mechanical qualities like hardness, toughness, and wear resistance. Chenab’s low alloy steel is built to withstand harsh conditions, providing durability and reliability.

  • Stainless Steels 

Stainless steel is an alloy of iron that is resistant to rusting and corrosion. For instance, the dairy industry and other food and beverage industries use stainless steel for nearly all their processing equipment.

's Range of Specialized Materials


  • High-Strength Low-Alloy Steels

Compared to conventional carbon steel, high-strength low alloy steel (HSLA) has better mechanical characteristics and higher resilience to atmospheric corrosion. These steels are different from normal alloy steel in that they are made to satisfy mechanical requirements rather than chemical requirements. These steels are used in the automotive industry, construction, and other structural applications.

  • Tool Steels

Tool steel is a term used to describe a range of carbon and alloy steels that are well-suited for the production of tools. They contain elements like molybdenum, vanadium, and tungsten which give them hardness and heat resistance. Tool steel’s ideal application is for tool manufacturing including machine dies and hand tools. Chenab’s tool steel is renowned for its remarkable durability and hardness, which make it perfect for demanding manufacturing environments.

  • Maraging Steels

Maraging steel is a special kind of steel alloy with low carbon content. This ultra-high-strength steel has superior toughness and good ductility compared to most steel. Maraging steel is mainly used in the aerospace sector as well as the manufacture of tools and weaponry

Applications of Chenab’s Steel Alloys

The wide variety of steel alloys produced by Chenab is used in several sectors including:

  • Construction:

Steel is widely used in construction, primarily in the form of structural, load-bearing members. This is because of its high strength and rigidity. Chenab’s steel alloys give the

Necessary strength and durability for modern infrastructure projects.

  • Automotive:

Steel is used in transportation in different ways. Infrastructure such as bridges and rails are built with steel. It also covers train cars, motor vehicles, and large ships. The incredible strength of steel makes it a good fit for these applications.

  • Energy Production:

Steel is used in energy production and transmission for its strength and magnetic properties. It appears in generators, motors, and transformers. Chenab’s steel alloys are used in pipelines, pressure vessels, and other essential infrastructures that require high strength and reliability.

  • Medical Equipment:

Stainless steel is used extensively in medical equipment because it resists corrosion. They don’t naturally promote microbial growth and can easily be cleaned and even heat-sterilised. Surgical tools and Medical instruments are commonly made from stainless steel.
