Carbon steel - tool and structural steel that does not contain dopants. Carbon steel is divided into a low-carbon (up to 0.25% carbon) of medium (from 0.25 to 0.6% carbon) and high-carbon (up to 2% carbon). From conventional steels carbon steel are less content of impurities, a small amount of silicon, magnesium and manganese. Carbon steel has high strength and high hardness. The quality distinguish carbon steel and structural quality. Quality carbon steel is cold (thin sheet) and hot (style, varietal, Rolled, Rolled, broadband). It issued the following brands: St1kp stations, St1ps, St2kp etc. Indices labeling deciphered as follows: kp boiling, nc semi-killed.


High-quality structural steel - a forged billet and hot rolled to a thickness of 250 mm, silverfish (round rods with a special surface) and calibrated steel. It issued the following brands: 05kp, 08kp, 08ps, 08, 10PP, 10ps, 10, 11kp, 15 ps, etc. The figures indicate the labeling percentage of carbon (in hundredths of a percent). High-quality structural steel is used to manufacture critical parts of mechanisms and machines, punching.


Qualitative steel is of not more than 0.03% phosphorus and sulfur, high not more than 0, 02%. Carbon steel is a different purpose: designed for statically loaded tool for shock. For the manufacture of cutting tools with high hardness, test shock (surgical instruments, files, scrapers, dies, drills, measuring tools) are used steel Y10 Y13. These steels exposed to all kinds of heat treatment and containing chromium, is also used for the production of turning tools. For making the tool exposed to impact loads (axes, saws, woodworking tools, chisels, metal stamps, screwdriver) are used steel U7-U9. They are also subject to any heat treatment method.
