Lead: making high-performance machining more efficient and cost-effective
Steel has played a major role in modern societies since the industrial revolution. A unique combination of low cost and high tensile strength has seen it become one of the world’s most important engineering and construction materials. Small amounts of lead added to steel reduces the energy requirements of machining the resulting compounds as well as optimising it for use. With Europe producing over €148 billion worth of steel in 2018 alone, lead is critical to supporting this key European industry.
