Carbon Steel Rods

Carbon rods are made up of high purity of carbon. Carbon rods are specific types of carbon know as graphite. Carbon rods are also known as hyper-eutectoid steel or drill steel, hypo eutectoid steel, eutectoid steel.  There are three types of carbon rods, namely; High-Carbon Steel, Medium-Carbon-Steel, And Low-Carbon Steel.

  • Carbon Rods give an Attractive appearance.

  • Carbon Rods are Environmentally friendly (recyclable)


Types of Carbon Rods provided by us

Low-Carbon Rods

  • Low-carbon steel is the most popular used form of carbon steel. These steels usually have a carbon content of less than 0.25 wt.%. They cannot be hardened by heat treatment so this is usually used by the cold work.

  • Carbon steels are usually relatively soft might have low strength at times. They do have high ductility, making them excellent for machining, welding, and low cost.

  • High-strength, low-alloy steels (HSLA) are also often classified as low-carbon steels, it also contains other elements such as copper, nickel, vanadium, and molybdenum. Combined, these comprise up to 10 wt.% of the steel content. High-strength, low-alloy steels, have higher strengths, which are Gained by heat treatment. They also retain ductility, making them easily machinable. HSLA is more resistant to corrosion than plain low-carbon steel.

  • Application of Low-Carbon Rods

  • Low Carbon steel rods are used for brushes in electrical generators and motors,  or carbon to coat surfaces (e.g. glass)

  • Low carbon steel rods are used in household appliances like cookware especially knives that are made of stainless steel.

  • Low carbon steel rods are used in whichever object that object becomes rust-free.

  • Low carbon steel rods are coated with those materials which are non-stick.

  • Low carbon rods are also used in pipelines.


Medium-Carbon Steel

  • Medium-carbon steel has a carbon content of 0.25 – 0.60 wt.% and manganese content of 0.60 – 1.65 wt.%. The mechanical properties of this steel are improved through heat treatment involving austenitizing and then followed by, quenching and tempering, giving it a martensitic microstructure.

  • Heat treatment can only be performed on very thin sections however additional alloying elements, such as chromium, molybdenum, and nickel, can be added to improve the steel's ability to be heat-treated and, thus, hardened.

  • Hardened medium-carbon steels are said to have greater strength than low-carbon steels. this comes at the expense of ductility, roughness, and toughness.

  • Application of Medium-Carbon Rods

  • Medium carbon steel is applied in railway tracks, train wheels, crankshafts, and gears and machinery parts that require this kind of combination of the properties.


High-Carbon Steel

  • High-carbon steel has a carbon content of 0.60– 1.25 wt.% and manganese content of 0.30 – 0.90 wt.%. It has the highest hardness and toughness of the carbon steels and hence leading, to the lowest ductility. High-carbon steels are very wear-resistant as a result of the fact that they are almost always hard and can be used at high temperatures for work.

  • Tool steels and die steels are two types of high-carbon steels, which contain additional alloying elements that include chromium, vanadium, molybdenum, and tungsten. The addition of these elements results in the very hard form of steel, which is a result of the formation of carbide compounds such as tungsten.

  • Application of High-Carbon Rods

  • High carbon steel rods are used in cutting tools and strength wire dies.

  • High carbon steel rods are also applied in the machinery parts.


Applications/Uses of Carbon Steel Rods provided by us

  • Carbon rods are used to coat the surfaces of glasses.

  • Rods of carbon can be used for electrical appliances.
