Carbon Steel EN 9 Bars are steel bars composed of relatively high amounts of carbon regarding other alloys. They have 0.50–0.60% Carbon and 0.90–1.10% Manganese, as the main chemical components, making them especially hard-wearing and strong for various applications across many industries. Along with the fundamental chemical ingredients, there may also be traces of other elements such as Sulphur, Phosphorus, and Silicon that help to enhance the working capacity and corrosion resistance of these bars even further. EN 9 Carbon Steel Bars contain very low amounts of Nickel and Chromium so they cannot be heat treated like other steels but come with several benefits in terms of affordability and strength that make it an excellent choice for a wide range of engineering applications.
Carbon Steel EN 9 Bars are made of steel and carbon, giving them great strength and wear resistance. This makes them ideal for use in high-pressure and corrosive environments, where other metals may quickly break down and become ineffective. Carbon Steel EN 9 Bars are primarily used in the petrochemical industry to manufacture valves, bolts, nuts, and studs. They can also be used in applications such as bridges, railways, mining crawlers, and agricultural equipment since they provide high tensile strength and excellent weldability. These bars are typically specified by EN (European Norm) standards which measure characteristics including yield strength, chemical composition, ductility, and machinability. In short, Carbon Steel EN 9 Bars offer great durability for industrial applications and superb value for money.
