PRIMARY STEEL PRODUCTION:
Primary Brand is produced from a steelmaking process known as BOF (Basic Oxygen Furnace) also known as a converter process. Here iron ore is converted into steel. It is manufactured from the raw material of iron ore. In the primary method, steel is produced directly by the processing of iron ore like Magnetite, Hematite, etc.
SECONDARY STEEL PRODUCTION:
The Steel produced by the method using available steel like scrap, billets, etc is called secondary method. In this process, to acquire the desired quality required elements will be added. Generally, it is made through the arc furnace route.

The primary steel quality will be consistent, uniform, chemically and mechanically better in properties. The prices of primary products will be higher than the secondary products. For Heavy Structures expecting a longer life, load-bearing units, etc. It is better to go for the main producer of steel.
In case of light structures like a compound wall, flooring structures, single-storey buildings, lintels, etc. Secondary steel can be used because of lower prices. Otherwise, it is always preferable for going to primary steel. The benefits of primary steel are higher compared to secondary steel because of better quality controls & superior process.
