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 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 1215 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!

1215 CARBON STEEL APPLICATIONS

Thanks to the high content of sulfur and phosphorus in it, this carbon steel is deemed to be essential in industries where efficient and speedy machining is required.  

As such, the common products which utilize a 1215 carbon steel round bar stock are the manufacturing of shaft couplings, studs, and pins.  

1215 carbon steel bar is a standard material in the construction industry. It has high tensile strength and is resistant to heat, corrosion, and oxidation. Also, the 1215 carbon steel is a popular choice for many general contractors. On top of that, it is used in different industries like aerospace manufacturing, automotive manufacturing, shipbuilding, and more.

It is used in various applications such as reinforcing bars, structural beams, and columns. Because 1215 carbon steel has excellent strength, toughness, and corrosion resistance, it can be used in various applications like construction, manufacturing, and agriculture.

1215 carbon steel is a type that can be hardened by heat treatment. It is used in the construction industry and the manufacture of metal products. 1215 carbon steel has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it ideal for engineering applications. It is also resistant to corrosion and can be readily welded or cut with metal shears.

If you are a company belonging to either electronics, automotive, or with offshore oil and gas rigs, refineries, and pipelines then best believe you will be needing a high-quality carbon steel round bar stock to manufacture all the parts and components.  

As such, AGS can provide you with all your 1215 carbon steel needs!
