Flat, Shaped and Round Wire


High strength wire, Masonry nails, Springs, Cutting tools, Knives


High carbon steels are difficult to weld because they contain carbon in the range of 0.6 percent to 1.0 percent. High carbon steels are susceptible to heat, and it easily flame hardened which allows it to be worked into many different forms. High carbon steels have greater tensile strength and are used to create products where strength is required.
