Properties of High Carbon Steel
High carbon steel contains approximately 0.60 to 1.00% carbon. These steels have much higher hardness compare with other grades, but ductility greately decreases.
Even though high carbon steel is not resistant to oxidation, it still corrodes much more slowly than low carbon steel.
High carbon steel is used in hardened and tempered conditions in those applications where wear characteristics and higher strengths are important.

Our customers ask about our High Carbon Steel supply:
General use of High Carbon Steel in applications are where a high hardness required in a low thickness. As it has an extreme hardness and resistance to wear it is often used for cutting tools that retain their sharp edge, bridge suspension cables, springs and high-strength wires, hammers and screwdrivers.
