Carbon stell parts manufacturers tell you what is carbon steel
Steel has high strength and good plasticity. Various mechanical parts can be processed by rolling forging, stamping, welding and casting methods, and mechanical properties can be improved by heat treatment and surface treatment methods. Therefore, its application is extremely wide. Many, according to the use, steel can be divided into structural steel, tool steel and special purpose steel.
Carbon steel includes ordinary carbon structural steel and high-quality carbon structural steel. Ordinary carbon structural steel (such as Q215, 0235) generally only guarantees mechanical strength without guaranteeing chemical composition, and is not suitable for heat treatment and is usually used in less important parts and mechanical structures.
The properties of carbon steel mainly depend on its carbon content. The carbon content of low carbon steel is less than 0.25%, its strength limit and yield limit are low, its plasticity is high, and its weldability is good. It is usually used to make screws, nuts, washers and welding parts. Low carbon steel parts with a carbon content of 0.1% to 0.2% can be hardened by carburizing and quenching to make the surface hard and the core tough impact resistant parts.
