Carbon is one of the main elements of industrial steel. The performance and structure of steel are largely determined by the content and distribution of carbon in the steel. The influence of carbon in stainless steel straps is particularly significant. The influence of carbon on the structure of stainless steel cable ties is mainly manifested in two aspects. On the one hand, carbon is an element that stabilizes austenite and has a large effect (about 30 times that of nickel). On the other hand, because of carbon and Chromium has a great affinity and forms a series of complex carbides with chromium. Therefore, in terms of strength and corrosion resistance, the role of carbon in stainless steel cable ties is contradictory. 
In general, the carbon content of stainless steel cable ties currently used in the industry is relatively low. The carbon content of most stainless steel cable ties is between 0.1% and 0.4%, and the acid-resistant steel has a carbon content of 0.1 to 0.2. % Is mostly. Stainless steel cable ties with a carbon content of more than 0.4% account for only a small part of the total number of steels. This is because under most conditions of use, stainless steel cable ties always take corrosion resistance as the main purpose. In addition, the lower carbon content is also due to certain technological requirements, such as easy welding and cold deformation.
