Ever wonder exactly what makes electrical steel so special? Never before has it set so much in motion as it does today and never before has so much of it been needed. Industry experts expect a five-fold increase in the demand for it to power electric cars in the next five years and a 20-fold increase by 2040. Looking at it, there is nothing spectacular about electrical steel but it is the physical properties of this soft magnetic material that make it so special.
