Low Carbon Low Carbon Steel


Low Carbon steel contains less carbon than other steels and is inherently easier to cold-form due to its soft and ductile nature. When strength is not a major concern, low-carbon steel is a good choice because it is easy to handle (draw, bend, punch, swage, etc.) and relatively inexpensive.
