Low Carbon Steel Round Tube is a type of metallic tubing made from low carbon steel. This term is usually used in the metal industry to describe a specific type of round tube.
Low carbon steel is a type that has a relatively low amount of carbon content, typically less than 0.3%. Because of its lower carbon content, it is more malleable and ductile than high carbon and other types of steel. This term is pretty straightforward. It refers to the shape of the tubing. In this case, the tube is round, as opposed to being square or rectangular, for instance.
This type of material is commonly used in many areas, like the automotive industry, manufacturing, construction, and more due to its strength and versatility. It’s often used for applications that require bending, welding, or where the additional strength provided by higher carbon steel isn’t required. It is also frequently used when large amounts of steel are needed because it is generally less expensive than higher carbon steels.
