Carbon and low alloy steels

Steels with carbon (C) content of less than 0.25 % also contain the elements (Si, Mn, P, S); when combined with other alloy elements like chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), molybdenum (Mo) or vanadium (V) in modest amounts, low alloy steels are produced with the increased mechanical properties of elasticity and hardness.

Metallographic structure made up largely of ferrite.

They can undergo heat treatments: annealing, hardening and tempering.

Industrial purposes: railway, automotive, mechanical construction.
