Carbon Steel Round Bars

Precision carbon round bar supplier across most grades with grinding services, TGP and bar straightening.

Carbon Round Bar Stock and Services

Carbon steel becomes is malleable after heating. You can can forge and manipulate it in whatever way.


Carbon Steel is the most common form of steel since it has a relatively low cost. Its properties are also suitable for many applications. While there are other elements present in the alloy, the quantities that they are found in are usually not large enough to alter the known properties of the steel.

Carbon Round Bar Steel Purchaser

Manganese, Copper, and silicon are the only other alloy elements allowable in plain-carbon steel. This material is common in construction, and other notable applications, such as automobiles, and kitchen appliances. Advance Grinding Services is the best carbon steel supplier to varied customers in many industrial sectors. 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.

Round Bar Carbon Steel Grades

Steel with low carbon content is closer to iron in its properties. This material is softer, but more easily manipulated. The higher the carbon content in the steel, the harder it is. But it is also more difficult it is to manipulate and form. Carbon Steel grades are rigorously evaluated to determine their exact properties to fit specific applications.

There are certain grades that Advance Grinding Services makes. 1018 & 1045 are the most common. We also stock 1144 and 1144 carbon steel rods which are stress proof. Other grades include 1117, 11L17, 1214, 12L14, 1215, which are fatigue proof.

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 Steel Round Bars

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 round bars in varied proper grades along with a high standard and quantity to meet your desired requirements.
