Read more about the classification of carbon steel by following the link below.
- The composition, such as carbon, low-alloy or stainless steel.
- The manufacturing methods, such as open hearth, basic oxygen process, or electric furnace methods.
- The finishing method, such as hot rolling or cold rolling
- The product form, such as bar plate, sheet, strip, tubing or structural shape
- The deoxidation practice, such as killed, semi-killed, capped or rimmed steel
- The microstructure, such as ferritic, pearlitic and martensitic
- The required strength level, as specified in ASTM standards
- The heat treatment, such as annealing, quenching and tempering, and thermomechanical processing
- Quality descriptors, such as forging quality and commercial quality.
Piping codes and standards - ASME, ANSI, ASTM, AGA, API, AWWA, BS, ISO, DIN and more..
Material properties of gases, fluids and solids - densities, specific heats, viscosities and more.
