  Corrosion of Carbon Steel
Because carbon steels represent the largest single class of alloys in use, both in terms of tonnage and total cost, it is easy to understand that the corrosion of carbon steels is a problem of enormous practical importance.
Carbon steels are by their nature of limited alloy content, usually less than 2% by weight for total of additions.
Carbon steel pipes and vessels are often required to transport water or are submerged in water to some extent during service.

  High Carbon Steel Strips
We are one of the largest steel strips suppliers of India, satisfying steel demand for a wide variety of industries.
High carbon steels contain from 0.7 to 1.00% C with manganese ranging from 0.5% to 0.9% This steels are commonly known as spring steel.
These steels are generally operated at very high stresses and heat-treated to obtain the maximum elastic limits and fatigue resistance without becoming sufficiently brittle to cause sudden failure in service.

 Stainless Steel
Pure iron, the primary element of stainless steel, is extracted from its natural state as iron ore, it is unstable by itself, and naturally wants to corrode (rust).
Austenitic stainless steels are hardened and strengthened through cold working (changing the structure and shape of steel by applying stress at low temperature) instead of by heat treatment.
Steel with less than 0.005% carbon is more ductile (malleable): It is capable of being drawn out or rolled thin for use in automotive body applications.

 Alloy, Metal Terminology (C)
Carbon is preset in practically all ferrous alloys, and has tremendous effect on the properties of the resultant metal.
In steel specifications, the carbon range is the difference between the minimum and maximum amount of carbon acceptable.

 ArtLex on Steel
Steel is often classified by its carbon content: a high-carbon steel is serviceable for dies, cutting, and carving tools because of its great hardness and brittleness; low- or medium-carbon steel is used for sheet metal and structural forms because it is easily and effectively welded.
Nickel steel is the most widely used of the alloys; it is nonmagnetic and has the tensile strength of high-carbon steel without the brittleness.
Stainless steel, which was developed in England, has a high tensile strength and resists abrasion and corrosion because of its high chromium content.

 carbon steel
, sometimes called fl, steel is obtained through high heat, causing oxidation to form as a thin layer on the surface of the metal, allowing for better heat transference to the food.
Steel being a reactive metal, it has disadvantages in that acidic foods should not be cooked in it.
To counteract its reactive properties in bakeware, steel is often lined with tin, a non-reactive, soft metal.

 A Woodworker's Guide to Tool Steel and Heat Treating
Slow cooling can be accomplished by burying the steel in an insulating medium such as lime or vermiculite and allowing it to cool to room temperature.
Fully annealed carbon steel consists, in addition to impurities and other alloyed elements, of a mechanical mixture of iron and iron carbide.
As the steel is heated, an oxide layer forms on the surface; its thickness (and thus the interference color as light is reflected) is a function of temperature.

 AISI | Steel Glossary
Steel deoxidized with aluminum in order to reduce the oxygen content to a minimum so that no reaction occurs between carbon and oxygen during solidification.
Steel that has properties made up mostly of the element carbon and which relies on the carbon content for structure.  Most of the steel produced in the world is carbon steel.
Processes steel into a more finished state, such as pipe, tubing, and cold-rolled strip, before selling it to end users.  Such steel generally is not sold on contract, making the converter segment of the mills’ revenues more price sensitive than their supply contracts to the auto manufacturers.

 B242-99(2004)e1 Standard Guide for Preparation of High-Carbon Steel for Electroplating
During the cleaning and electroplating cycle, high-carbon steel differs from low-carbon steel in regard to its greater tendency to become embrittled and the greater difficulty in obtaining maximum adhesion of the electrodeposit.
The preparation of low-carbon steel for electroplating is covered in Practice B 183.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

 eFunda: General Information on Carbon Steels
Carbon steels are designated by distinct AISI (American Iron and Steel Institute) four-digit numbers.
The first two digits indicate the grades of the steels, while the last two digits give the nominal carbon content of the alloy in hundredths of a percent.
If a letter L or B shows up between the second and third digits of an AISI number, it means that this grade is either a Leaded steel or a Boron steel; Sometimes a suffix H is attached to a AISI number to indicate that the steel has been produced to prescribed hardenability limits.

 Tool Steel Gospel According to Hock   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Vanadium, tungsten, and molybdenum are often added to tool steels to make the steel resist annealing (softening) when used in "high-speed" (high heat) applications.
High-speed steels are essential in metal-working tools (drills, milling cutters, etc.) and "stainless" steels can be cost effective by resisting rust during the manufacture, shipping, and storage of the tool itself.
Correctly heat-treated, tools made from high-speed, stainless, and "chrome-vanadium" steels may hold an edge well in woodworking applications, but, due to the large, hard carbide particles that form during hardening, they are difficult to sharpen and cannot be honed as sharply as a blade of plain high-carbon steel.
