Carbon steel types include low, medium and high carbon content steels whose chemical composition is defined in broad ranges. Low-carbon steel has 0.30% or less carbon; medium-carbon steel has 0.30%-0.60%; and high-carbon steel has 0.60%-1.00% carbon content.
Low-quenchability steel capable of attaining medium-range tenacity and high weldability after treatment.
Used in the manufacture of coated rolls, flanged shafts, bushings and other parts that require a material with good weldability.
