Carbon Steel Valves

Carbon Steel Valves for Commercial & Industrial Use

Carbon steel is a common material for industrial valves, but what sets it apart from stainless steel? The most obvious difference is its appearance. It does not have the silvery chrome appearance that makes stainless steel so iconic. In fact, carbon steel typically has a dull, matte finish that is more comparable to cast iron. However, carbon steel is a high-quality metal alloy that is comparable to stainless steel with only a few major performance differences. Carbon steel has a slightly lower melting point and fewer chemical resistances, but it is more malleable and durable and has better heat distribution, due to its high carbon content. Carbon and stainless steel are both high-grade materials, each with their strengths.
