What Are the Benefits of Carbon Steel?
While stainless steel may be one of the most popular alloys used in the manufacturing of components due to its durability and easy to clean nature, carbon steel has plenty of benefits when it comes to tube fittings, especially for those in the industrial sector. Stronger than stainless steel, carbon components work well in demanding environments that may otherwise damage other alloys and comes in low, medium, high and ultra-high carbon content. Additional benefits of carbon steel components include:
- Durable: Carbon steel is extremely durable and shock-resistant. This makes it a popular choice for construction, for use in the oil & gas and petrochemical industries, forestry, and other heavy-duty. Carbon steel is also not prone to rotting as many other metals are.
- Safe: Compared to many other materials, steel is safe to handle and work with.
- Green: One often overlooked factor is that carbon steel is easy to recycle compared to many other materials, making it environmentally friendly.
- Economical: Carbon steel can be made very thin compared to other metals. This makes it very cost-effective for manufacturing and purchasing.
- And many more.
