Hot Rolled Mild Steel Bars are used for general purpose applications. This steel is a low carbon grade, having good over-all mechanical properties. It is easy to fabricate by the usual structural methods, such as mild cold and hot forming and welding.
A low-carbon steel having a higher manganese content than Mild Steel and certain other low-carbon steels. Being richer in manganese, it is a better steel for carburized parts, since it produces a harder and more uniform case. It also has higher mechanical properties, including Brinell hardness, and better machining characteristics. In its production, special manufacturing controls are used for chemical composition, heating, rolling, surface preparation, etc. The result is a quality product suitable for applications involving forging, heat treating, cold drawing, machining, etc.
These are medium-carbon steels. In their production, special controls are used for chemical composition, heating, rolling, surface preparation, etc. As a result of this careful processing, these bars are suitable for applications involving forging, heat treating (including flame hardening), cold drawing, machining, etc.
This grade is low-carbon, high-manganese steel. It possesses much of the machining quality of 1212 Screw Stock but with improved mechanical properties. The grade also has excellent carburizing properties.
This is medium-carbon, manganese steel. It is melted to special bar quality and fine-grain specifications, possessing high consistency and uniformity. Strength characteristics are high in the as-rolled condition, and greater hardness and strength may be obtained through heat treatment. Machinability is excellent, due to addition of sulphur.
Hot Rolled M1044 is a medium-carbon steel used in general purpose applications when special quality is not required. It has good overall properties somewhat higher than low-carbon Mild Steel Flats. This grade may be fabricated using the usual structural methods. It is machinable and is capable of being induction hardened.
