Carbon steel is best for basic structural components and provides a good average level of strength, though can be less hard wearing.
Glenmar makes many steel components for truck suspension and air conditioning parts.
Low carbon steel is a basic but strong metal, which is easy to weld to other materials.
High carbon steel provides much higher mechanical properties which means that the items can be used in situations that call for these properties – usually higher stress applications like truck suspensions, couplings. The low carbon steel just would not provide strength required in these instances
Alloy steel is used for higher performance properties delivering greater tensile and yield strength and elongation properties
Glenmar manufactures castings in alloy steel as wear parts in ground engagement tools for agriculture, excavation and mining equipment where greater durability and strength is required.
Stainless steel has the added benefit of corrosion resistance.
Glenmar produces stainless steel castings for air-conditioning units, which are installed close to the sea.
