    - Aluminium and silicon are alloying elements.

    - The method used to improve oxygen content during steel manufacturing is called as deoxidization.

    - Aluminium controls grain growth and hence is added to control grain size.

    - Silicon acts as principle deoxidizer. It is less effective in creasing rolled strength and hardness.
