Material Steel
Steel is an alloy of iron and maximum 2.1% carbon. The strength increases with the contents of carbon. Low-carbon steel (less than 0.3 % carbon) is generally used for common industrial products such as nuts, sheets and tubes.

Medium carbon steel (0.3 to 0.6 % carbon) is stronger than low carbon steel and used for automotive and machinery applications.

High carbon steel (more than 0.6 % carbon), is strong, hard, and wear resistant and is used for cutting tools, springs and cutlery.
