Low carbon steel pipe manufacturer is one type of carbon steel pipe with the carbon content less than 0.25%. It is also known as mild steel pipe due to its low strength and low hardness. Low carbon steel pipe includes most of the ordinary carbon structural steel pipe and part of the high quality cabron structural steel pipe. Most of low carbon steel pipe without heat treatment is applied for structural engineering, and some of low carbon steel pipe with heat treatment and carburizing is applied for wear-resistant mechnical parts.
Since low carbon steel pipe has a very low carbon content and poor machinability, normalizing treatment can improves its machinability.
The annealing organizations for low carbon steel pipe is the ferrite and a small amount of pearlite which creates low strength, low hardness, good plasticity and toughness. Therefore, low carbon steel pipe has good cold formability, it can be cold formed by curling, bending, stamping and other methods. Besides, it also has good weldability. The carbon content is from 0.10% to .030% which is easy to accept a variety of processing such as forging, welding and cutting. Commonly it is used in the manufacturer of chains, rivets, bolts, shaft and so on.
