Carbon Steel Plate & Coil Plate


Con-Tech’s global sourcing supplies carbon steel plates & coil plate  in many grades, widths, and thicknesses. Carbon steel plate is extremely durable and used in manufacturing gears, screws, bolts, and other components for busy production machinery allowing it to operate for longer periods  without hardware maintenance. Carbon steel plate also can be used in construction, and in durable storage containers that can last for decades.

Con-Tech can deliver carbon steel plates & coil plate through several ports, to almost anywhere in North and Central America. Con-Tech also specializes in sourcing custom manufacturing of high-quality stainless steel and specialty metal components.

Carbon steel changes depending upon the amount of carbon present. Low-carbon steel is softer and less brittle than higher-carbon varieties. Low- carbon steel is the most common and cost-effective form and is malleable and ductile but has a relatively low tensile strength while medium carbon steel balances ductility and strength with good wear resistance. High-carbon steel is brittle, but possesses a very high strength, extreme hardness, resistance to wear, and moderate ductility, making it better able to be deformed without actually breaking.
