Iron is the atomic atomic element 26.
The word "iron" is incorrectly used in common language to indicate "low alloy iron alloys", called sweet steels. This element is always linked to others such as carbon, silicon, manganese, chrome, nickel, etc. With carbon the iron forms its two best known alloys: steel and cast iron. At industrial level one can obtain iron with a purity approaching 100%, then this product is then used to be bound to other chemical elements to obtain alloys of different characteristics.
Extremely important in technology for its mechanical characteristics, its workability was in the past so important to be named a whole historical period, the age of iron.
