Carbon Steel round bar is the most common form of steel because of its relatively low cost. Its properties are suitable for many applications.


A long, thin, and cylindrical rod made of carbon steel is what we call a carbon steel round bar. Round bars made of carbon steel are utilized in producing a wide variety of goods and are also made available to the general public for purchase. The low price and wide range of sizes available for a carbon steel round bar are two of the many benefits of using this product.

Carbon steel is one of the most typical kinds of steel. It is frequently utilized in the production of industrial components as well as automobile componentry. Carbon round bar is also employed in manufacturing tools and other equipment types used in many industries such as building, farming, and mining. Also, you can get several carbon steel to round steel bar suppliers with perfect quality. 

A thin sheet of carbon round bar is first rolled into a cylindrical shape using a rolling mill to produce round bars composed of carbon steel. Carbon round bar types have several advantages over other types of metal, including that they are more flexible, durable, have greater strength, and are cheaper than different types of metal. types also have better corrosion resistance.

Steel Purchaser

A form of steel known as carbon steel round bar is produced by pouring molten pig iron into a steel mold. The type of steel made can be identified by the amount of carbon in the molten pig iron. Carbon Steel Round Bar or carbon round bar has a wide range of applications, including the manufacture of crankshafts and gears for automobiles and railroad tracks, among other things.

However, the best advantage industries can get with carbon steel bar stock is the efficient malleability that allows it to be cut, twisted, and bent to create the desired form or shape of an end product.  Such is the reason why a lot of industries of round steel bar suppliers that are capable of supplying high-quality carbon steel round bar stock. Correspondingly, carbon steel bar stock is often cold-rolled especially for industries that require flat tolerances, excellent thickness, and press formability. These products can are readily available in many sizes and we have a robust carbon steel rod stock.

As such, Advance Grinding aims to be a well-rounded cold drawn steel bar suppliers and carbon steel round bars supplier not just for large companies but also for small and mid-sized ones which is why we also provide excellent milling and grinding services. Our products and services are ISO 9001:2015 certified and have passed high-quality standards to meet any stringent requirement or criteria set by our customers.

The demand for cold-rolled steel bar also encourages a carbon steel round bar supplier to provide such extra service to ease the difficulties, especially those experienced by small and medium companies.

AGS can provide you not just cold-rolled carbon steel bar stock, but also a range of services, like centerless grinding and other finishing services. You can contact us for affordable prices and quality. We are open for national delivery and global exports of products that are necessary for any manufacturing process.

carbon steel bar STOCK

With carbon steel harder and stronger than stainless steel, it is the perfect material to be used in creating cutting tools and large machine parts. However, one can’t just simply pick up a carbon steel round bar stock and have it readily machined for a specific purpose. The entire carbon steel round bar stock must be rigorously evaluated to determine their exact properties to fit and be appropriately used for specific applications.

With Advance Grinding Services, a reputable carbon steel round bars supplier, we ensure that we evaluate our stocks thoroughly and pull out the appropriate one befitting the client’s intended applications. After the rigorous evaluation, we machine and appropriately grind carbon steel to acquire certain carbon steel round bar stock and turn them either into cold-rolled steel bar or precision ground steel bar. 

As such, the hardness of your carbon steel depends on the machining and grinding processes and turn carbon steel rods either into cold-rolled steel bar or precision ground steel bar. Here in Advance Grinding Services, we provide the appropriate milling and grinding processes, however, there are only certain carbon steel grades we offer and the most commonly sought are 1018 and 1045. We also stock 1144 and 1144 carbon steel rods which are stress-proof and other grades include 1117, 11L17, 1214, 12L14, 1215, which are fatigue-proof and can be achieved through cold rolling.

For a complete list of carbon steel grades that we offer, take a look at this table:
1018 Steel Round Barmild (low carbon) steel, strong and ductile, has good weldability propertiescrimping, bending, swaging, worms, pins, gears, dowels, tool holders, machine parts, pinions, ratchets, etc.
1020 Round Barsuitable for surface hardening, can be case machined, hardened, and weldedhydraulic shafts, motor shafts, pump shafts, machinery parts
1030 Carbon Steel Barshigh carbon steel, has moderate hardness and strength, machineable, ductilemachinery parts, used in the tempered and quenched condition for strength
1035 Carbon Steel Round Barsmedium-carbon engineering steel, suitable for induction hardening and flameused for forged parts, links, gears, couplings, forged shafts and axles
1040 Carbon Steel Rodsgood strength, wear resistance, and toughness, machineableforged couplings, and crankshafts
1045 Steel Round Barmedium carbon steel, can be forged satisfactorily, most common shafting steelinduction hardening applications, medium strength parts, shafts for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders
1050 Carbon Steel Round Barsplain carbon steel, readily welded and machinedforged shafts and gears
1060 Carbon Steel Rodsstandard grade carbon steelused for forged applications
1065 Carbon Steel Alloyhigh-carbon steel, has high tensile strength, heat treatableblades, and cutlery
1144 Carbon Steel Round Barsstress proof – equivalent steel, a higher-strength alloy than A36 and 1018, has improved ductilityused for parts requiring mechanical properties obtained by heat treating
11L14 Carbon Steel Rodsfree machining steel has enhanced machinability, stronger than 1018used for forged applications
12L14 Carbon Steel Alloyfree machining steel has enhanced machinability, stronger than 1018screw machines, couplings, inserts, bushings, and hydraulic hose fittings

Carbon Round Bar

Carbon steel round bars are available in cold drawn or hot rolled conditions.

Based on the amount of the carbon content in the steel, there are 4 carbon steels classifications:

  1. Mild and low – These steels contain 0.16 – 0.29% carbon content. The alloys come at a relatively low cost, making them the most common form of steel. They offer material properties which are acceptable for various applications. They are neither ductile nor brittle, but they are malleable. Carburizing can increase its surface hardness.
  2. Medium carbon steel – These steels contain approximately 0.30 – 0.59% carbon content. They have excellent wear resistance and can balance strength and ductility. These steels are used in forging and for automotive and large industrial components.
  3. High carbon steel – They contain approximately 0.6 – 0.99% carbon content. The alloy has excellent strength. Therefore, they are used for high-strength wires and springs.
  4. Ultra-high carbon steel – These steels contain 1 – 2% carbon content. They are commonly used for specialized products like axles, knives, or punches simply because you can increase their hardness.

Advance Grinding Services stocks products that have a wide variety of applications in infrastructure, ships, tools, pipe buildings, automobiles, machines, and appliances, etc. We supply carbon steel bar stock and carbon steel rod stock with a high standard and quantity to meet your desired requirements.
