Types of carbon steel wire

Carbon steel wire types are primarily classified by the level of carbon in the base material. A higher carbon percentage means a stronger material. There are several types of carbon steels, and each one is capable of excelling in specific situations.

Low-carbon steel

A general-purpose carbon steel wire grade. It’s commonly found in everyday applications, such as coat hangers, appliance shelving, store displays, and paper clips. It bends and flattens nicely, forms shapes easily, and is suitable for welding.

Medium-carbon steel

This carbon steel wire type offers the right balance between strength and ductility. Heat-treatment of medium carbon steel can alter mechanical properties, such as hardness and strength. This grade of carbon steel wire is typically used for steel parts.   

High-carbon steel

Featuring a high level of carbon content in the base material, this steel wire is incredibly strong. It’s regularly used to make masonry nails, springs, cutting tools, and knives


Springs must be capable of fulfilling a purpose, which means choosing the materials from which they’re made is critical.
