Carbon Steel
Wuxi Qianqiao Strip Steel Co.,Ltd | Updated: Jul 24, 2017

Carbon steel is steel with carbon content up 2.1% by weight. American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) definition of Carbon Steel states: steel is considered to be carbon steel when:

  • no minimum content is specified or required for chromium, coblat, molybdenum, nickel, niobium, titanium, tungsten, vanadium or zirconium, or any other element to be added to obtain a desired alloying effect;

  • the specified minimum for copper does not exceed 0.40 percent;

  • or the maximum content specified for any of the following elements does not exceed the percentages noted: manganess 1.65, silicon 0.60, copper 0.60.

The term "carbon steel" may also be used in reference to steel which is not stainless steel; in this use carbon steel may include alloy steels.

As the carbon percentage content rises, steel has the ability to become harder and stronger through heat treating; however, it becomes less ductile. Regardless of the heat treatment, a higher carbon content reduces weldability. In carbon steels, the higher carbon content lowers the melting point.
