LOW CARBON PLATE STEEL Low Carbon Plate Steel is manufactured to three separate carbon ranges that relate to thickness and end use requirements. Plates 3/4" and lighter are produced to the lowest carbon range (0.10-0.20) for maximum cold forming and welding properties. Sizes 3/4"-1 1/2" the carbon range is (0.15-0.25) which gives improved machining, while retaining its forming and welding properties. Plates over 1 1/2" have carbon increasing to (0.20-0.33), this is a killed steel that provides the best combination of strength, weldability, and structural soundness. MEDIUM CARBON PLATE STEEL Medium Carbon Plate Steel in the (.40-.50) carbon range is silicon killed and higher carbon for improved strength. Light and medium thicknesses can also be heat treated for greater strength. Machinability is good, but ...
