Low Carbon Steel Wire
Coil Weight: 0.5 kg – 1,000 kg
Grade: Q195, Q235
Low Carbon Steel Wire
Low carbon steel wire is a metal wire drawn from low carbon steel. This wire has a carbon content of less than 0.20%, has good formability and ductility, and can withstand moderate bending or flattening. Mild steel wire is a versatile manufacturing wire. It is used in a wide range of applications such as making nails, producing woven wire mesh, or as a binding wire. Wanzhi Steel offers different sizes of low carbon iron wire and zinc coverings. If you are looking for steel wire for your project, feel free to contact us for more details.
Low Carbon Steel Wire Properties
2. Good ductility
4. Low cost
Low carbon iron wire is used for a wide range of applications. People are also willing to spend less to choose high quality mild steel wire for various applications. The following is the range of its use for your reference.
Bundling use — as tie wire to bundle hay, waste paper, or wire.
Metal mesh — Various kinds of fence making, such as woven wire mesh or welded wire mesh.
Barbed wire — Low carbon steel wire is used for barbed wire fabrication, generally with a diameter of 1.4 to 2.8 mm.
Construction — Used for tying reinforcing steel in concrete construction.
Difference Between Low, Medium & High Carbon Iron Wire
The key factor to distinguish between low carbon iron wire, medium carbon iron wire, and high carbon iron wire is the carbon content. Next, Wanzhi Steel will take you to know more about it.
|Wire Type||Carbon Content（C）|
|Low Carbon Steel Wire||0.04% ≤ C < 0.25%|
|Medium Carbon Steel Wire||0.25% ≤ C < 0.6|
|High Carbon Steel Wire||0.6% ≤ C < 2.0%|
1. Low Carbon
Low carbon steel is characterized by a low ratio of carbon to iron. In addition, this steel wire is also less costly, yet has good malleability. For some projects where wire flexibility is required, low steel wire is the best choice.
2. Medium Carbon
Medium carbon steel has a higher carbon to iron ratio than low carbon steel. Moreover, medium carbon iron wire is stronger than low carbon iron wire and also has good toughness. This steel wire can be used to make ropes, strands, umbrella ribs, etc.
3. High Carbon
The carbon content of high carbon iron wire is 0.6%-2.0%. Compared with low-carbon and medium-carbon steel wires, high-carbon iron wires have higher strength and hardness, but less ductility than the former two.
Low Carbon Steel Wire Price
The price of low carbon iron wire is related to the diameter and whether it is coated or not. But in general, it is relatively cheap in the market. At Wanzhi Steel, we offer special prices for customers who order in large quantities. So, buying in large quantities is more cost effective than buying in small quantities. If you want to get the price of low carbon iron wire, please tell us the following details.
