Carbon steel plates, Stainless Plate and Aluminium plates have versatile applications in different industries. It is classified according to the carbon content, Nickel content from low to high. It is also classified according to its usage and application.
Different types of carbon steel plates are used in machinery and production companies as the base material for component construction. Its durable property makes it ideal for various manufacturing parts. Apart from carbon steel plates, there are vessel steel plates, shipbuilding or construction steel plate, structural steel plate, pipeline, and stainless steel plates.
The steel plates fall into two main categories:
Carbon Steel Plates
Carbon steel can be divided into three main categories:
- Low carbon steel – Low carbon steel is a type of steel that has small carbon content, typically in the range of 0.05% to 0.3%. Its reduced carbon content makes it more malleable and ductile than other steel types. Low carbon steel is also known as mild steel.
- Medium carbon steel – Medium-carbon steels are similar to low-carbon steels except that they contain carbon from 0.30% to 0.60% and manganese from 0.60% to 1.65%. These steels are mainly used for making shafts, axles, gears, crankshafts, couplings, and forgings.
- High carbon steel – High carbon steels, as their name suggests, are steels with high carbon content. If iron is heated to a high temperature, it dissolves carbon, which would normally precipitate upon cooling. However, if this liquid metal is cooled very quickly by ‘quenching’ it in water, the carbon is trapped and distorts the structure of the substance, forming high carbon steel.
Stainless Steel Plates
Stainless steel, on the other hand, can be grouped into five main types:
- Austenitic – Austenitic refers to an alloy consisting mainly of austenite. The most widely used grade of stainless steel is austenitic. Austenitic alloys contain a high percentage of nickel and chromium, which makes them, and the steel made from them, very resistant to corrosion.
- Ferritic – Ferritic stainless steel is really defined as a straight chromium non-hardenable class of stainless alloys which have chromium ranging from 10.5% to 30% and a carbon level under . 20%. These steels are essentially non-hardenable by heat treatment and only slightly hardenable by cold rolling.
- Martensitic – Martensite is a very hard form of steel crystalline structure. It is named after German metallurgist Adolf Martens. By analogy the term can also refer to any crystal structure that is formed by diffusionless transformation.
- Duplex – Duplex stainless steel is a type of stainless steel that is composed of grains of two types of stainless steel material, austenitic and ferritic. The word “duplex” refers to the two-phase microstructure of ferritic and austenitic steel grains.
- Precipitation – The precipitation hardening (PH) stainless steels are a family of corrosion resistant alloys some of which can be heat treated to provide tensile strengths of 850MPa to 1700MPa and yield strengths of 520MPA to over 1500MPa – some three or four times that of an austenitic stainless steel such as type 304 or type 316.
