Things You Should Know About Carbon Steel Plate
A carbon steel plate is usually considered as a kind of steel plate that does not contain much alloy steel elements. The alloy steel elements are generally C, Mn, P, S, Si. Besides these, there are no minimum limits for elements of Al, Cr, Ni, Mo, V, etc.
Carbon steel plates are available in different grades depending on the carbon content and strength.
There are low, medium, and high carbon steel plates. The more carbon content, the more durable and stronger the plate becomes. There are further sub-categories depending on thickness and usage as well as the formation process. Usually, carbon steel plates vary from 0.4 mm to 80 mm in thickness and 1000 mm to 45000 mm wide, and they can be of length up to 18 meters. But the length is customizable which helps the customers to put them into various applications. One can also make cold rolled steel coils from them.
Carbon content levels for each of carbon steel plate
Low carbon steel plate: For carbon content 0.06% to 0.25%, also we call it mild steel plate.
Medium carbon steel plate: C content from 0.25% to 0.55%.
High carbon steel plate: 0.55% to 1.0%, also called hard steel plate.
As the content of Carbon increases, the steel plate hardness increases.
What Are The Different Types Of Carbon Steel Plates Available?
Carbon steel plates have versatile applications in different industries. It is classified according to the carbon content from low to high. It is also classified according to their usage and application. Different types of carbon steel plates are used in machinery and production companies as the base material for component construction. Its durable property makes it ideal for various manufacturing parts. Apart from the carbon steel plate, there are vessel steel plates, shipbuilding or construction steel plate, structural steel plate, pipeline, and stainless steel plates.
