What is Low Carbon Steel?
Low carbon steel contains up to .30% carbon and less than .60% manganese on most grades. Low carbon steels are malleable and more ductile than higher carbon steels. Low carbon steels in hot rolled form cannot usually be ordered to specific hardnesses.
Why Low Carbon Steel?
This is a very commonly specified grade of steel. Low carbon steel has increased formability and ductility. It is widely available from many sources around the world.
Low carbon steel will improve tool life more than higher carbon steels. It will typically have little or no grade extras when purchasing the raw material. This allows for greater cost savings.
