Product Description

The 1008 carbon steel sheet has been cold rolled, has an unpolished (mill) surface, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM A1008 specifications, and has a standard tolerance. The 1008 carbon steel grade has lower carbon content than 1010 steel for mild strength, but with greater formability, weldability, and toughness. This material can be heat treated for higher hardness. The sheet has been cold rolled, a method of compressing metal between two rollers below the material's recrystallization temperature to achieve the specified dimensions.

Steel is an iron alloy with carbon and other elements that modify the steel to achieve specific properties. In general, steels with higher carbon content have greater strength, hardness, and wear resistance, while those with lower carbon content have more formability, weldability, and toughness. Carbon steels, which include most AISI-SAE grades in the 1000 range, are classified by their level of carbon content as low (below 0.3%), medium (0.3% to 0.6%) and high (0.6% and above). Alloy steels, which include AISI-SAE grades in the 1300 and 4000 ranges and above, incorporate elements such as chromium, molybdenum, and nickel to modify properties like machinability and corrosion resistance. Tool steels, which include most grades with a letter and number grade designation, have high carbide content for wear resistance, high hardness, and the ability to hold a cutting edge. Some tool steels are designed to resist deformation when used in elevated temperatures.

Tensile strength, used to indicate a material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.

Got this large plate to etch it. A lot cheaper then either zinc or copper at this size. Etched beautifully with hard ground and aquatint. The plate is greasy but if prepped like any other plate for etching it comes out perfectly clean.

Online metals is exactly what I needed! I need material that is atractive and workable. With the plates, I am not having to attempt to cut off my fingers to get a workable size!! A must!!

The 36x36 sheet metal is just fine, as is the price. One star off, not because of the sheet metal as such, but because it got bent in several places in shipping. If you want a perfectly flat piece, as I did, you take your chances with the shipper. I wondered how it would arrive perfectly flat, and it did not, although it seemed reasonably well packaged within cardboard. I needed a flat piece to affix to a wall upon which to place photographs using magnets. Once bent, the piece is difficult to make flat again. But again, the problem lies more with the shipper than with the product which, if not bent, is very nice for the price.

I need a steel plate to use as in interior mounting plate for a garage door button. These plate were easy to work with: cut easily with a jigsaw, the edges filed easily and they were thick enough to drill a hole into it would bending the plate. Note that it will rust easily. I handled this by polishing the plate (a buffing wheel on a drill made it shine like a mirror) and spraying a clear coat on it. It looks great.

I am using these for structural support for a monitor stand and they work perfectly for that. It may be the shipping or the product but they did have some surface rust but for me worked great.

What can I say.... it is a piece of steel. I am using it underneath a burn barrel. It is just what I needed.
