Carbon steel is an iron-carbon alloy with a carbon content of 0.0218% to 2.11%. It also contains a small amount of silicon, manganese, sulfur, and phosphorus. Generally, the higher the carbon content, the greater the hardness and the higher the strength, but the lower the plasticity. According to the carbon content, carbon steel plate can be divided into low carbon steel (C ≤ 0.25%), medium carbon steel (C 0.25%-0.6%) and high carbon steel plate (C>0.6%).
The weight can be calculated by the following formula: Weight = 7.85 * length (m) * width (m) * thickness (mm)
For example, if the MS plate is 3 m in length, 1.5 m in width, and 20 mm in thickness, the weight will be 760.5 kg. If you have any questions, please let us know.
Generally, carbon steel sheet plates are available in different types depending on the carbon content, making method, thickness, and usage. Let’s have a review of them below.
There are generally low, medium, high, and extra-high carbon steel plates according to the carbon content.
Low carbon: C content from 0.06% to 0.25%. It is also called a mild carbon plate.
Medium carbon: C content from 0.25% to 0.6%.
High carbon: C content from 0.6% to 0.95%.
Extra-high carbon: C content from 0.96% to 2.1%.
It should notice that as the content of carbon increases, the steel hardness increases, but the final plasticity reduces.
|Types||Carbon Content||Tensile Strength||Yield strength||Properties|
|Low Carbon (MS) Plate||0.05-0.25%||325-500MPa||180-260MPa||Low hardness; high ductility;
low cost; good formability and weldability
|Medium Carbon Plate||0.26-0.60%||460-620MPa||325-420MPa||Medium strength, ductility and toughness|
|High Carbon Plate||0.61-1.50%||660-940MPa||380-440MPa||Greatest strength and hardness; low ductility and formability|
According to the thickness, it can be grouped into thin, medium, thick, and extra-thick carbon plates.
|Thin carbon steel sheet||0.2mm-4mm||600mm-1,500mm|
|Medium carbon steel plate||4mm-20mm||600mm-3,000mm|
|Thick carbon steel plate||20mm-60mm||600mm-3,000mm|
|Extra-thick carbon steel plate||60mm+||600mm-3,000mm|
1. The raw material of carbon steel is easy to find, so it is usually low in production cost.
2. It has a robust construction, high ductility, easy fabricating, good abrasion resistance, and great versatility.
3. It is in a wide selection of thicknesses, sizes, grades, and types to choose from.
4. Being a cost-effective alternative to GI, GL, and SS steel.
1. High carbon plates sometimes are too difficult to work with.
2. Relatively speaking, it is less attractive, and more susceptible to rust and corrosion.
3. When the temperature exceeds 200 degrees, the wear resistance of the carbon plate will deteriorate.
4. Its hardenability is not good, prone to deformation or cracking when doing so.
The carbon plate is commonly used in machinery, chemical, petroleum, boiler, heat exchanger, medical equipment, and other industries. For example, it can be used as:
1. Making building materials like carbon steel angle/coil/strip, mold bottoms, scaffoldings, machinery parts, I-beam, etc.
2. Construct bridges, highways, buildings, ships, offshore structures, power stations, storage tanks, boilers, pressure vessels, etc.
3. General fabrication like cabinets, enclosures, bucket parts, truck bodies, heat exchangers, condensers, steel repairing, etc.
4. Used as the base material of GI, and PPGI steel.
Yes. Carbon steel does rust easily because it lacks the corrosion-resistant protective coating of its stainless steel counterpart. Although it’s stronger and more durable than stainless steel, carbon steel may rust and corrode fast when getting in touch with moisture. Once exposed to water and oxygen, the steel may start to see signs of rust in as little as 4-5 days.
Therefore, most carbon steel products are not suitable for coastal and highly corrosive environments.
