Medium Carbon Steel Wire


Medium carbon steel wire has a carbon content between  0.20%-0.5%.  This is a popular material suitable for numerous applications. Because of its higher carbon content, it is stronger and slightly less ductile than low carbon wire.  This type of material has fair formability, will take moderate bending or flattening, and can be roll threaded. Its strength is primarily a function of its carbon content, increasing with carbon amount. The ductility (or malleability) of carbon steel decreases as its carbon content increases.

When used for plating and coating, an excellent surface finish is imperative. Taubensee’s decades of expertise in manufacturing a first-class surface finish is what puts our medium carbon wire above the rest.

Taubensee Steel can adjust many variables in production and chemistry to adapt to your specific application need.
