Low alloy steels (LAS) are primarily used for applications that require better mechanical properties than can be obtained with carbon steels. LAS are typically used in military vehicles, construction material, and in shipbuilding. Alloying elements are normally less than 10% and are defined by the following elements:
ACCURATE IDENTIFICATION OF LOW ALLOY STEELS USING HANDHELD LIBS
In order to meet the ever increasing demands of modern metal production, the Rigaku KT-100S was purposefully engineered to provide the means for rapid and accurate alloy grade identification and elemental composition verification.
