Demand for grain-oriented electrical steel sheet used in transformers has been growing steadily due to adoption of renewable energy and the electrification of automobiles.

Electrical Steel products contain additives such as Silicon and Aluminium. It offers good magnetic properties including high magnetic flux density and low iron loss making it ideal for the iron cores of Power Transformers. Non Grain oriented electrical steel, which exhibits magnetic properties that are largely uniform in all directions, is used in iron cores of generators, motors and appliances.
