Why does iron manufacturers add carbon? This actually strengthens the metal's internal structures. The most widely-available alloy, carbon, is also the cheapest. 5 definitions of carbon steel. Steel that is more carbon is harder and stronger when it is heated treated. It also becomes less malleable and less hardened by heat treatment. A higher level of carbon in steel will make it less weldable. The melting point is lower if there's no heat treatment. Low-carbon steel is tough and strong but it doesn't withstand heat well. This is the most widely used type of steel we sell. It has a low price and can be used in a variety of applications. It is both malleable as well as ductile. The metal has a low tensile force and can be hardened by heat treatment, carburising. It is easier to cold-form than other grades. Higher-carbon steels will tolerate heat treatment. They don't like trace impurities which can adversely affect the quality. The biggest problem is sulphur, which makes the steel brittle, and can cause it to crack when used. High carbon steel is hardened and tempered by heat treatment. It is difficult to bend, cut and weld. It becomes extremely hard and brittle when heat treated. There are many uses for carbon steels. Low carbon steel is often made into sheets and strips. It's used in shipbuilding, wire and household appliances. Because it is resistant to heat treatment, it's used extensively for panelling and fabrication. The lowest carbon steel is called "wrought iron", and it is used to make fencing, gates, and railings. It is also easier to machine, and small amounts of manganese and silicon can improve the quality. It's also known as mild steel and is used structurally in structures such as bridges, buildings, axles gears shafts rails and pipelines. It is used to produce extremely hard components such as cutting tools, large machine parts and hot water radiators. Cast iron is also known as cast iron, and it's used to make traditional cooking pots.
