High Carbon Steel Strip – Grade C98.

This is a very special grade of steel & is mainly used for making those components where very high tensile strength & yield stress is required. It can achieve hardness of up to 58 HRC Rockwell after Hardening & Tempering. This grade is commonly used for making different kinds of Industrial knives, because due to high hardness it can give a better knife edge & thus a better cutting capacity.

Medium Carbon Steel Strips

Meduim Carbon Steels are similar to low carbon steel except that the carbon ranges from 0.30 to 0.60% & the manganese from 0.50 to 1.65%. Increasing the carbon content is approximately 0.5% with an accompanying increase in manganese allows medium carbon steels to be used in the quenched & tempered conditions. This steels are of particular importance because of unique combination of strength & toughness after heat treat treatment.

Essar Group plans more overseas coal, iron ore asset buys-report

Indian conglomerate Essar Group plans to acquire more coal and iron ore assets in Indonesia, Australia and Africa as it seeks to meet robust demand in India, Bloomberg reported citing Chief Executive Officer Prashant Ruia.

The company is looking at investing overseas to access natural resources, Ruia told Bloomberg TV in an interview at the World Economic Forum on East Asia (KOSDAQ: 900110.KQ – news) in Jakarta.

Essar Group could not immediately be reached for comment.

Essar Group, is controlled by Indian billionaire brothers Shashi and Ravi Ruia, who also run London-listed Essar Energy (Dusseldorf: 11224817.DU – news) and has interests in steel, ports and logistics and telecommunications.


CRCA High Carbon Steel strip

High carbon steels contain from 0.7 to 1.00% C with manganese ranging from 0.5% to 0.9% This steels are commonly known as spring steel. These steels are generally operated at very high stresses and heat-treated to obtain the maximum elastic limits and fatigue resistance without becoming sufficiently brittle to cause sudden failure in service. Hardenability of spring steel is very important because only fully hardened springs have the maximum resistance to take a permanent set (sagging).
