What is High Carbon Steel?

High carbon steel contains approximately .6 to .99% carbon. High carbon steels are very strong and typically used for springs and high-strength wires. As the carbon content rises, the steel becomes harder and stronger through heat treatment, but high carbon steel is less ductile and less weldable.

Higher carbon steels allow for a harder steel after heat treating, allowing for increased durability and longer life of the product. The higher the carbon the harder it can be heat treated. High carbon steels are very strong and typically used for coil springs and high-strength parts.

What is Medium Carbon Steel?

Medium carbon steel coil is steel that contains 0.3 to 0.6% carbon, while high-carbon steel has greater than 0.6% carbon. Both allow for a harder steel after heat treating, which allows for increased durability and longer life of the product.  However, High-carbon steel is less ductile and less weldable.
