Carbon Steel vs. Stainless Steel

When deciding what to do for your next metal fabrication project, one thing you need to consider is whether you will use carbon steel or stainless steel.

Appearance-wise, both metals can be polished and sanded until they are shiny. Carbon steel needs to be covered with a clear coat of paint after cleaning to prevent rust and tarnishing. Carbon steel usually appears dull and stainless steel is glossier.

Price-wise, stainless steel usually costs more than carbon steel. As far as corrosion goes, stainless steel is more corrosion resistant than carbon steel.
