Stainless Steel or Carbon Steel?
There are specific instances in which carbon steel is a better material than stainless steel. Carbon steel exists in numerous types, though we use the following most frequently:
- Hot-rolled steel
- Cold-rolled steel
- Hot-rolled, pickled and oiled (HRPO) steel
- High-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) steel
Each form has its own chemical and material properties. Carbon steel is a low-cost solution for applications with lower strength requirements, though it should only be used in non-corrosive environments unless given a protective coating. Clients who need us to fabricate large industrial objects like railroad ties or various forms of sheet metal often choose carbon steel for their operations.
