Carbon steel is a metal alloy, a mixture of two metal elements: Carbon and Iron.
Carbon Steel is the most common form of steel used since it has a relatively low cost, and its properties are 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. Manganese, Copper, and silicon are the only other alloying elements that are allowed in plain-carbon steel. This material is used widely in construction, and in many other notable applications, such as automobiles, and kitchen appliances.
Carbon steel becomes malleable when heated, so it can be forged and manipulated in whatever way is required.

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, to greater the hardness, but also the 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 excels in. 1018 & 1045 are the most common, although there are many of others that fall into this category including 1144, 1144 stress proof, 1117, 11L17, 1214, 12L14, 1215, Fatigue proof to name the most we deal with
|CARBON STEEL GRADES||DESCRIPTION||APPLICATION|
|1018||mild (low carbon) steel, strong and ductile, has good weldability properties||crimping, bending, swaging, worms, pins, gears, dowels, tool holders, machine parts, pinions, ratchets, etc.|
|1020||suitable for surface hardening, can be case machined, hardened, and welded||hydraulic shafts, motor shafts, pump shafts, machinery parts|
|1030||high carbon steel, has moderate hardness and strength, machineable, ductile||machinery parts, used in the tempered and quenched condition for strength|
|1035||medium-carbon engineering steel, suitable for induction hardening and flame||used for forged parts, links, gears, couplings, forged shafts and axles|
|1040||has good strength, wear resistance, and toughness, machineable||forged couplings, and crankshafts|
|1045||medium carbon steel, can be forged satisfactorily, most common shafting steel||induction hardening applications, medium strength parts, shafts for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders|
|1050||plain carbon steel, readily welded and machined||forged shafts and gears|
|1060||standard grade carbon steel||used for forged applications|
|1065||high-carbon steel, has high tensile strength, heat treatable||blades, and cutlery|
|1144||stress proof – equivalent steel, a higher-strength alloy than A36 and 1018, has improved ductility||used for parts requiring mechanical properties obtained by heat treating|
|11L14||free machining steel has enhanced machinability, stronger than 1018||used for forged applications|
|12L14||free machining steel has enhanced machinability, stronger than 1018||screw 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, carbon steels are classified into four classes:
- Mild and low – These steels contain 0.16-0.29% carbon content. They 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.
- 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.
- High carbon steel – These steels contain approximately 0.6 – 0.99% carbon content. They have excellent strength and thus, they are used for high-strength wires and springs.
- Ultra-high carbon steel – These steels contain 1 – 2% carbon content. These steels are commonly used for specialized products like axles, knives, or punches simply because these steels can be tempered to great hardness.

The Basics of Aluminum Alloy
Aluminum is the most abundant metal in Earth’s crust after silicon and oxygen. It has a silvery-white appearance and contains a lot of valuable mechanical properties. It possesses 60% of the electrical conductivity of copper, with much lower density, making it a lightweight material perfect for aircraft and aerospace construction.
Pure aluminum is soft and ductile, but it can be strengthened when it is alloyed with other elements like magnesium, copper, and silicon. Such alloys possess better corrosion resisting properties, with a protective oxide coating that is achieved and enhanced through the process of anodization. Their lightweight and non-toxic mechanical properties enable them to be easily machined and cast. One good thing about aluminum is that it is recyclable, which can save considerable amounts of energy. They only need to undergo a melting process in order for them to be reused.
Aluminum alloys have low density, therefore, they are lightweight which is one of the key factors to consider in constructing an aircraft and its vital parts. Other important properties they possess are malleability, high strength, easy machining, good electrical and thermal conductivity, and excellent corrosion resistance.
Aluminum in the Aviation Industry
80 percent of commercial transport aircraft frames are made up of aluminum. This alloy is the top choice for the construction of aircraft and parts like wings and fuselage. Most navy aircraft are mainly made of fabricated aluminum. The focus on aluminum casting technology is continuing to earn recognition with its countless advantages in forming complex parts for aircraft structure. With a low manufacturing cost, Aluminum Alloy is the top choice for incorporating innovative and complicated design concepts in the aviation industry.
