The use of carbon steel and stainless steel

1. Carbon steel

Carbon steel is an alloy steel, mainly composed of iron and carbon, which is widely used in manufacturing. Carbon steel has high strength and hardness, but when the carbon content is too high, the brittleness will also increase.

The application of carbon steel mainly includes the following aspects:

1. Manufacture important mechanical parts, such as construction machinery, auto parts, etc.;

2. Make forging mold;

3. Make cooling equipment, geothermal mining equipment, etc.

Two, stainless steel

Stainless steel is an alloy steel with good corrosion resistance. Due to the addition of chromium, nickel and other elements, the composition of stainless steel is more complex than carbon steel. Stainless steel has good corrosion resistance, high temperature strength and good processing properties.

The application of stainless steel mainly includes the following aspects:

1. Make high-end kitchenware, tableware and other utensils;

2. Manufacturing equipment and components that require corrosion resistant equipment in refining, chemical and other industries;

3. Make building and interior decoration materials.

3. Comparison of carbon steel and stainless steel

1. Corrosion resistance: carbon steel is easy to rust, stainless steel has a high corrosion resistance.

2. Strength and hardness: Carbon steel is stronger than stainless steel, but it is also more brittle.

3. Chemical reaction: carbon steel is susceptible to chemical reactions, while stainless steel has good stability.

4. Processing properties: stainless steel has better plasticity and processing properties.

In short, carbon steel and stainless steel have their own characteristics and advantages and disadvantages in different use occasions. Choosing the right material can improve product quality and service life, while also reducing production costs.
