Carbon Steel Grades

Carbon Steel grades are rigorously evaluated to determine their exact properties to fit specific applications.

Carbon steels can have a lot of various grades that are suited for different applications for their varied range of featured properties.

Carbon steel can undergo heat treatments and has combined carbon and iron. Other elements are present in it but they do have just a little impact on its properties. Manganese, Copper, and silicon are the only other alloying elements that are allowed in plain-carbon steel.

Like other steels, carbon steel grades are also carefully selected and tested to acknowledge their certain properties for their application specification.

These are certain properties of carbon steel grades that Advance Grinding Services supplies.
1018 mild (low carbon) steel, strong and ductile, has good weldability properties crimping, bending, swaging, worms, pins, gears, dowels, tool holders, machine parts, pinions, ratchets, etc.
1020 suitable for surface hardening, can be case machined, hardened, and welded hydraulic shafts, motor shafts, pump shafts, machinery parts
1030 high carbon steel, has moderate hardness and strength, machineable, ductile machinery parts, used in the tempered and quenched condition for strength
1035 medium-carbon engineering steel, suitable for induction hardening and flame used for forged parts, links, gears, couplings, forged shafts and axles
1040 has good strength, wear resistance, and toughness, machineable forged couplings, and crankshafts
1045 medium carbon steel, can be forged satisfactorily, most common shafting steel induction hardening applications, medium strength parts, shafts for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders
1050 plain carbon steel, readily welded and machined forged shafts and gears
1060 standard grade carbon steel used for forged applications
1065 high-carbon steel, has high tensile strength, heat treatable blades, and cutlery
1144 stressproof-equivalent steel, a higher-strength alloy than A36 and 1018, has improved ductility used for parts requiring mechanical properties obtained by heat treating
11L14 free machining steel has enhanced machinability, stronger than 1018 used for forged applications
12L14 free machining steel has enhanced machinability, stronger than 1018 screw machines, couplings, inserts, bushings, and hydraulic hose fittings
