Forged carbon steel is ideal for applications that involve high temperature and pressure such as oil and gas piping and special machinery parts. By open die forging the carbon steel, the forging process increases the strength of the material by eliminating flaws like air bubbles or other characteristics associated with casting. In addition to being mechanically stronger, another advantage of carbon steel forging over casting is the increased wear and impact resistance that is a result of the tight grain structure of the composition post forging.
