Comparison of carbon steel and stainless steel

Comparison of carbon steel and stainless steel

The nature of carbon steel and stainless steel is completely different. Building materials manufactured and produced by carbon steel and stainless steel will also have great differences in service performance and service life. So which carbon steel or stainless steel is stronger?

Carbon steel and stainless steel have the same basic composition of iron and carbon. The main difference between them is the alloy content. The alloy content of carbon steel is less than 10.5%, while the chromium content of stainless steel must be greater than or equal to 10.5%. This essential difference is what makes carbon steel and stainless steel have unique physical properties.

Carbon steel and stainless steel are different, but it cannot be said who is stronger. Everything is related to the use environment. Each material has advantages and disadvantages, and the key is to match the steel with the purpose.

Carbon steel: It is easy to rust, brittle, and wear-resistant. It is used to make fixed structural parts stronger.

Stainless steel: anti-rust, less brittle, poor wear resistance, stronger equipment used for frequent activities.
