Steel, an alloy of iron, carbon and small amounts of other metals, melts at approximately 1370 degrees Celsius. Because the exact chemical composition of different steel alloys varies, the melting point differs slightly depending on its grade.
The melting point of steel varies depending on the elemental properties of the alloy. Carbon steel has a wider melting point range than stainless steel. Carbon steel melts between 2,597 and 2,804 degrees Fahrenheit, while stainless steel melts at approximately 2,750 deg...
The melting point of aluminum is 1220.58 degrees Fahrenheit, 933.47 degrees Kelvin and 660.32 degrees Celsius. Aluminum also has a boiling point of 4566 degrees Fahrenheit, 2792 degrees Kelvin and 2519 degrees Celsius.
Different types of plastics have drastically different melting points, which means some plastics such as polyvinyl chloride plastics can melt at as low as 165 degrees Fahrenheit, while other types such as the plastic in Teflon cookware will not melt until they reach tem...
Most glass takes on a more fluid consistency at temperatures of around 1350 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature, glass has the consistency of honey or syrup.
Ice begins to melt when its surroundings rise above its freezing point, that being 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius). Depending on the salt content and the presence of other substances, that freezing point may be an even lower temperature.
The melting point of pure 24-carat gold is 1945 degrees Fahrenheit. This is fairly average for a metal, being three times higher than the melting point of lead and a third of the melting point of tungsten.
