Carbon steel as the name refers is a fusion of carbon and steel together to form a trustworthy alloy, that has been utilized in major parts production owing to its hardness and durability which takes wear and tear better then most other alloys. The use of varying parts in an automobile or aircraft industry being run on high energy fueling systems, calls for use of parts made from alloys like carbon steel. It can be heat treated for an increase in its hardness but the result is also a decrease in the ductile properties. Machining of the overly hardened carbon steel alloy, leads to brittleness and cracking in wrong ways.
Pipes and tubes forged from carbon steel are capable of being used in varied instances of a piping framework, due to its capability of sustaining increasing internal pressure and external wear and tear. They can be fixated using welding and threading. Pipes and tubes come in varied dimensions, with some having differing dimension ends which can be attached to couplings or pipes of varying dimensions. The pipes are resistant to corrosion and prevent formation of iron oxide on its surface layer.
