Question: What is steels boiling point and melting point?

  1. There are many different kinds of steel, depending on what is mixed with the iron that makes up most of it. Add some chromium and you get stainless steel; “ordinary” steel is just iron with some carbon mixed in – makes it harder.
    Just iron melts at around 1500 degreed C; with carbon in it it may melt at a lower temperature – around 1300 degrees. I looked that up at says the boiling point is around 2750 degrees.


  2. I’ll defer to Peter on this one! 🙂


  3. I think that’s covered!
