A steel is a metal alloy consisting mainly of iron and carbon (in proportions of between 0,02% and 2%).

It is essentially the carbon content that gives the alloy the properties of steel.  There are other iron-based alloys that are not steels, such as cast iron.

Below 0.35 carbon, steel will be considered non-spring (or not hard) steel.

There are therefore different types of steel :

There are other names :

We may also find other denominations  such as St37, Stxx, S235JR, S355JR which all designate non-spring steels, intended for construction or not.

All these steels are suitable for laser cutting, bending or stamping.
