1215 Carbon Steel Bar Stock

Known to be a free-machining alloy, the 1215 carbon steel responds well to threading, slight bending, and nibbing.

1215 Carbon Steel Round Bar Stock

With its higher quantities of phosphorus and sulfur, its excellent machinability shines through. Moreover, it offers cleaner finishes and higher tolerances and is thus considered to be a better alternative to 1018 carbon steel.

A LEAD-FREE ALTERNATIVE TO 1214 CARBON STEEL

Although this type of carbon steel is known for its high machinability, the downside is its low lead content and is therefore not a good material for applications that involve severe fatigue stress.

As such, a 1215 carbon steel bar stock is a staple to industries that require machinability to their daily manufacturing operations.

With Advance Grinding Services, we vow to provide high-quality carbon steel bar stock to industries that deem it essential!
