Steel Quality Rating: Free poster

Steel suppliers and industry manufacturers face the challenge of being compliant with multiple ever-stricter standards. These different standards classify non-metallic inclusions to determine the quality of steel.

From this poster, you get an overview of the following key points related to the rating of non-metallic inclusions:

  • International and regional standards
  • Classification of individual particles (dimension, shape, aspect ratio, color, and grouping)
  • Comparison of inclusion types defined in the most common standards
  • Classification of severity of the inclusions
