Carbon and Low-Alloy Steels Classification

Steel is considered to be carbon steel when no minimum content is specified or required for chromium, cobalt, columbium (niobium), molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium or zirconium

Read more about the clasification of carbon steel by following the link below.

  • The composition, such as carbon, low-alloy or stainless steel.
  • The manufacturing methods, such as open hearth, basic oxygen process, or electric furnace methods.
  • The finishing method, such as hot rolling or cold rolling
  • The product form, such as bar plate, sheet, strip, tubing or structural shape
  • The deoxidation practice, such as killed, semi-killed, capped or rimmed steel
  • The microstructure, such as ferritic, pearlitic and martensitic
  • The required strength level, as specified in ASTM standards
  • The heat treatment, such as annealing, quenching and tempering, and thermomechanical processing
  • Quality descriptors, such as forging quality and commercial quality.
