Carbon Steel Investment Castings

Texmo Precision Castings pour a wide variety of Carbon steels at our foundries in Warsaw, Indiana and Coimbatore, India.

This material is commonly used in the automotive industry where we use it regularly for parts in the light and heavy auto industry.

Our commonly cast Carbon Alloys include:

Alloy Name Characteristics Usages
1010, 1020, 1025 Low Carbon Steels Applications that require welding and crevice corrosion protection
WCB, 1030, 1035, 1045, 1050 Medium Carbon Steels Shafts and Gearings, Railways applications, Applications that would benefit from Increased ductility.
1060, 1090, 1095 High Carbon Steels Applications that require extreme hardness and resistance to wear.

Typical Carbon Alloy Characteristics

Carbon steel is one of the most popularly cast alloys for a reason due to its incredible structural integrity.

Other benefits include:

  • Excellent cost effectiveness
  • Ferromagnetic properties
  • Ability to be hardened and strengthened
  • Versatility of their uses from hardwearing applications to those requiring a more ductile steel. Uses range from nails and clips to bridges and reinforcement
