There are two major fallacies in discussions on this topic. First is the problem of the hermeneutics of hyper-skepticism. Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, and sometimes other e of its high tensile strength and low cost, it is a major component used in buildings, infrastructure, tools, ships, trains, automobiles, machines, appliances, and weapons.

Iron is the base metal of steel. Iron is able to take on two crystalline forms (allotropic forms), body centered cubic and face-centered cubic. Two steel making processes were known and practiced in antiquity; the cementation process and the crucible process.

The cementation process involved heating wrought iron in contact with a carbon source (usually charcoal) in such a way as to exclude exposure to air. A brief history of the Indian iron and steel industry K.

These bands are formed by sheets of microscopic carbides within a tempered martensite or pearlite matrix in higher carbon steel, or by ferrite and pearlite banding in lower carbon steels.
