Although this general purpose steel’s features can easily be exceeded by other types of steel, the 1018 carbon steel is easily manufactured and machined thus incurring lesser costs when it comes to grinding and machining processes.

As such, this might be the reason why it maintains popularity among industries. 

Consequently, for industries where accurate dimensional tolerances and smooth surface appearance is necessary, they need to use 1018 carbon steel bar stock resulting from cold-drawn processes.  

Here at Advance Grinding Services, we can provide both high-quality 1018 carbon steel bar whether you want it in its hot rolled or cold drawn form. 

The AGS team is flexible enough to accommodate whatever form you want your 1018 carbon steel bar to be in!

A MIX OF STRENGTH, DUCTILITY, AND HARDNESS

As most industries already know, the 1018 carbon steel is easily formed, machined, fabricated, and welded.

Although its overall properties are not considered to be very unique, its manganese content helps it acquire the properties it is most known for.

Consequently and as already mentioned above, 1018 carbon steel is usually produced by cold drawing as it is through this process that the steel gets to increase its tensile, yield, and torsional strength and its wear resistance and surface hardness.
