Here are 10 types of carbon steel bars we supply along with brief descriptions of their characteristics and common applications:

Round Bar

Cylindrical in shape, round bars are one of the most common types of carbon steel bars.
Applications: Axles, shafts, bolts, and general structural components in machinery.

Square Bar

Four equal sides make up the cross-section of square bars, providing stability and strength.
Applications: Structural components, braces, and fasteners in construction and manufacturing.

Flat Bar

Rectangular with a flat surface, flat bars are versatile and easy to work with.
Applications: Base plates, brackets, and various structural components in construction and fabrication.

Hexagonal Bar (Hex Bar)

Six-sided with flat surfaces, hex bars offer good strength and provide easy gripping.
Applications: Fasteners, nuts, bolts, and machining applications.

Rebar (Reinforcing Bar)

Ribbed steel bars designed to reinforce concrete in construction projects.
Applications: Foundations, slabs, and concrete structures to enhance tensile strength.

TMT Bar (Thermo-Mechanically Treated Bar)

TMT bars undergo a specialized heat treatment process to enhance their strength and durability.
Applications: Reinforcement in construction for high-stress areas like building columns and bridges.

Deformed Bar

Similar to rebar, deformed bars have surface deformations to provide better adhesion with concrete.
Applications: Reinforcement in concrete structures where improved bond strength is required.

Half Round Bar

Semi-circular in shape, with a flat side and a rounded side.
Applications: Decorative elements, handrails, and architectural features.

Twisted Bar

Round or square bars that are twisted along their length for added visual appeal.
Applications: Architectural details, decorative metalwork, and ornamental applications.

Knurled Bar

Bars with a pattern of raised ridges (knurls) on their surface for improved grip.
Applications: Handles, handrails, and components requiring a non-slip surface.

These carbon steel bars serve a wide range of applications in construction, manufacturing, and various industries.

The choice of a specific type of bar depends on factors such as the intended use, required strength, and the specific characteristics needed for a particular application.
