For higher strength and lower weight, consider High-strength, Low-alloy (HSLA)
Formability: % Elongation:
For better formability consider Drawing Steel
For better corrosion resistance, consider Coated Steel
What is Low Carbon Steel?
Low-carbon steel, also known as plain-carbon steel and Mild Steel contains a small percentage of carbon (0.05–0.25%C). It is the most common form of steel because its price is relatively low while it provides material properties that are acceptable for many applications. In applications where large cross-sections are used to minimize deflection, as in large structures, failure by yield is not a risk so low-carbon steels are the best choice.
Low carbon steel contains up to .30% carbon and less than .60% manganese on most grades and are malleable and more ductile than higher carbon steels. When in hot rolled form cannot usually be ordered to specific hardnesses.
