Steels with only carbon as their specific alloying element are known as carbon steels. Traces of 0.4% silicon and 1.2% manganese can be found in these steels. Carbon steels also contain small quantities of copper, nickel, molybdenum, aluminium and chromium.
The following datasheet provides an overview of AISI 1015 carbon steel.
AISI 1015 carbon steel can be used in forged, cold-headed or cold-formed parts which are low strength with wear resistant and hard surfaces.
