A high-carbon, cold rolled steel containing approximately 0.50% carbon that can be hardened by heat treatment to a maximum hardness of approximately Rockwell C 58.
Soft annealed high carbon steel is meant for uses requiring moderate forming, while soft spheroidized annealed product is meant for uses requiring maximum cold forming.
- Strength, Yield Strength ksi (MPa), Tensile Strength ksi (MPa): Strong, 65 (380-550)
For higher strength and lower weight, consider High-strength, Low-alloyx
- Formability: % Elongation: Very Good, 23-25%
For even better formability consider Drawing Steel
- Joining – Very Good
may normally be welded without special precautions using any of the standard arc or resistance welding methods.
- Corrosion Resistance – Good
Galvanizing will slow corrosion. For longer life in harsh chemical conditions, consider Galvanized or Coated Steel
- Chemistry – A ‘plain’ steel without expensive alloying elements
- Cost – Relatively low.
Good when thinner, stronger, or more formable steels will not add value.
