About Carbon Steel

Steel is commonly considered carbon steel when no minimum content is specified for any alloying element (for example, aluminum, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, vanadium, etc.) or any other element added to obtain a desired alloy effect. The manganese does not exceed 1.65%, the specified minimum for copper in not below .40% or exceed .60% and silicon does not exceed .60%.

Steel Carbon levels are divided as follows:

low carbon = .06% to .25% carbon content (mild steel)
medium carbon = .25% to .55% carbon content (medium steel)
high carbon = >.55% to 1.00% carbon content (hard steel)

Carbon Steel Grades are available in the following grade series:

10XX = non-resulpherized carbon steel, with manganese 1.00% maximum (for example 1018, 1045 and 1050).
11XX = resulpherized carbon steel (for example 1117, 1141 and 1144).
12XX = rephosphorized and resulpherized carbon steel (for example 12L14 and 1215).

The second two numbers in AISI-SAE designations indicate the approximate carbon content for steel (for example, in 1018 the carbon range is .15% to .20%; .18% [shown as "18"] is the approximate carbon content).

Common Carbon Steel shapes are Bars, Pipe, Tube, Plate, Sheet and Structural (Angle, Channel, beams, Tees and Re-bar/Re-rod).

Carbon Steel Shapes

Common shapes for carbon steel include:
 - Angle
 - Channel
 - Beam
 - Tee
 - Re-Bar / Re-Rod

In addition to shapes, Alro stocks carbon steel products including, Seals, Strapping, Rebar and Re-Rod. 

Carbon Steel Rebar

Carbon steel rebar is a reinforcing steel usually in the form of carbon steel wires or bars. It is  commonly used as a tensioning device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures holding the concrete in compression.

Carbon Steel Seals

Carbon steel seals are used to secure steel strapping in shipping applications. The style of the seal depends on what your application accepts, and can include Push, Open, or Semi-Open.

Carbon Steel Strapping

Carbon steel strapping is used in packaging and shipping when paired with the proper seals. It is available in regular duty and high tensile.
