Different Applications of Carbon Steel

Carbon Steel has a carbon range between 0.04% and 1.5%. It is the most common production metal available, making up to about 90% of steel production.

Carbon steel is often categorized by carbon content:

Mild Carbon Steel

Mild carbon steel includes carbon steel containing 0.04% up to 0.30% carbon content. It is also known as “low carbon steel.”
