In metallurgy, pig iron was the basic raw material used in the creation of chrome steel.

In 2268, the Klingons provided the villagers of Neural with pig iron that was almost carbon-free for manufacturing guns. Captain Kirk observed that there was no way such pure pig iron could be produced with the accompanying furnace that was discovered with the pig iron. (TOS: "A Private Little War")
