Carbon Steel Metallurgy Webinar
Thursday, July 12, 10:00 am – 11:30 am CDT

This webinar teaches about the effects of alloy composition, heat treating, and cold-working on steel strength and hardness. Participants will also learn how these three factors are used to modify carbon steels to obtain specific hardness and strength.

Topics covered:

  • Different types of plain carbon and low-alloy carbon steel alloys and their designations
  • Effects of carbon content on steel strength and hardness
  • Effects of cold working on steel strength
  • Brief explanations of common heat treatments and their effects on steel
  • How the microscopic metallurgical structures in steel are modified to obtain specific strength and hardness

Who should attend: Sales, operations, purchasing, and other metals industry professionals.
