TYPES OF STEEL
Carbon steel belongs to unalloyed steel in which the leftover component like carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur and silicon are controlled.
If the carbon content is raised, the stability and rigidity are also increased but the ductility & weldability are reduced.
It is an alloy steel that comprises of a minimum of 12% of chromium and extra nickel, manganese, molybdenum alloy components.
It has good resistance strength against heat, oxidation & corrosion.
It does not include stain, corrode or rust like ordinary steel but not stain-resistant.
HSLA (High-Strength Low-Alloy) Steel
It is a series of low-carbon steels which include lower than 2% alloys in a chemical composition to enhance strength, ductility & resistance against corrosion.
It has good strength and rigidity as compared to ordinary carbon steel.
It belongs to different types of carbon and alloy steels which are suitable for being transferred into tools.
It is very strong and has good resistance strength against erosion and deformation as well as capability to retain a cutting edge.
