What is carbon steel made of

Carbon steel, also known as carbon steel, is an iron-carbon alloy with an internal carbon content of nearly 2%. Carbon steel contains many other components besides carbon, such as manganese, sulfur, or silicon. In general, the higher the carbon content of carbon steel, the greater the hardness, the higher the strength. Just note that the higher the carbon content, the lower the plasticity.

What are the classifications of carbon steel

1. there are many types of carbon steel, such as carbon structural steel or tool steel, structural steel is divided into mechanical or engineering class. According to the smelting method, because the method is different, there are some open hearth steel.

2. if divided by carbon content, according to its percentage control within 0, 25%, called low carbon steel, there is a reach of 0, 6% above, called high carbon steel.

3. if according to its quality, one is ordinary, one is high quality or super grade of high quality steel.
