Let’s talk about cast carbon steel a little further.
What is Cast Carbon Steel?
Yes, you’re right if you think that carbon steel only has a principal alloy element – carbon. But there are other elements present in cast carbon steel but only in small amounts. Examples of these elements are Silicon and Manganese.
Silicon (Si) ranges from 0.25 to 0.80%, and Manganese (Mn) ranges from 0.50 to 1.00%.
Carbon Steels are divided into three groups depending on carbon content such as:
- Low carbon steels – < O.20% C
- Medium carbon steels – 0.20 up to 0.50% C
- High carbon steels – > 0.050% C
The low-alloy steels have alloying elements besides carbon, with 8% total alloy content. Meanwhile, cast steels contain the amount of a single element that makes these as low cast steels.
Take note: We use titanium, aluminum, zirconium for the deoxidation of low-alloy steels and carbon. Since it’s affordable and effective, we often use Aluminum in the deoxidation. The Sulphur limit for low-alloy steels and carbon is 0.06% (unless specified). 0.05% is the standard phosphorus limit.
Structure and Property of Cast Carbon Steels
Caster Metal produces cast carbon steels in different properties such as strength, hardness, fatigue resistance, ductility, and toughness. Yes, our carbon steel selections are according to various properties, but we still recognize the interrelationships between these properties.
Here’s an example:
For Strength and Hardness: the ultimate tensile strength of low-alloy steels and cast carbon ranges from 414 to 1724MPa. (But this depends on the heat treatment and alloy choice.) For carbon steels, the heat treatment and carbon content determine the strength and hardness.
For Strength and Ductility: The actual ductility requirements depend on the hardness and strength of the steel. For example, quenched and tempered cast steels give higher ductility than annealed or normalized steels.
Remember: The more carbon we add on steel, the stronger and harder it gets under heat treatment. But it also becomes less ductile that means the steel loses strength when it’s deformed. A steel having high carbon content is less malleable. The more carbon steel has, the lower the melting point.
