Carbon Steel Characteristics
Carbon steel is an iron-carbon alloy that contains up to 2.1 percent carbon. Essential to any carbon steel is carbon and manganese. As the carbon content of the steel is increased, higher hardness and strength can be attained.
There are three types of carbon steel:
- Low carbon steel forging: less than .25 percent carbon
- Medium carbon steel forging: between .25 and .6 percent carbon
- High carbon steel forging: .6 to 1.25 percent carbon
Carbon steel forged bars are used in a wide variety of products and applications in many industries. Examples include automotive components, structural shapes, pipes, gears, crankshafts, cutting tools and dies.
