Carbon Steel Pipes
Carbon Steel has a mixture of steel and carbon with carbon being 2.1% of the total content by weight. Carbon Steel pipes do not contain specific quantities of cobalt, chromium, nickel, niobium, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, zirconium and other elements. Copper in carbon steel does not exceed 0.40%. Also, it contains manganese 1.65%, silicon 0.60%, and copper 0.60%.
Increasing carbon content in steel will increase the strength and hardness of steel through heat treating. Heat treating causes reduced ductility. The increased carbon content in these steel pipes also reduces weldability.
