Italian term or phrase: acciaio nero
Is there a more specific meaning other than "black steel"
Real Bridges
black steel
Explanation:
I am now sure that "acciaio nero" is best translated as "black steel".
I found out that
"acciaio nero" is primarily meant to be "acciaio ricotto" (annealed).
However it might also mean covered with carbonaceous materials (black graphite) or painted black, depending on context.
Further, black steel (annealed steel) need not necessarily be carbon steel. Annealing, (a heating process carried out in several different ways in order to reduce internal stresses of the material) can be carried out on many different kind of steels, and on other materials as well.

black steel


Explanation:

black steel
(acciaio nero) viene usato dagli addetti ai lavori, come anche blackband "banda nera" (contrapposta a "banda stagnata") (di Carbonato di Ferro).

Di sicuro viene usato per tubature.

sospetto che black steel e carbon steel non siano esattamente la stessa cosa, ma mi devo ancora informare...

Explanation:
Tanuki is right, according to Marolli's Dizionario Tecnico. Marolli gives "black steel" = "acciaio (ricotto) nero". (Acciaio ricotto = annealed steel). I hope this helps. Andréa
