1018 Steel Bars
Hot Rolled 1018 Steel Bars are low carbon steel round bars used in engineering that offer good formability, weldability and machinability. Since it has higher manganese than commercial quality and AISI 1020, it offers better carburising properties. The mechanical properties of hot rolled AISI 1018 steel round bars are higher than commercial quality steel round bar.
Mild Steel is used in mechanical engineering applications for parts that will not be subject to high stress.
When in its bright cold drawn condition the steel is able to endure higher levels of stress, particularly on smaller diameters.
Compared to normal Mild Steel, bright Mild Steel provides tighter sectional tolerances, increased straightness, and a much cleaner surface. The main advantage of cold drawn 1018 steel is that Steel can be brought closer to the finished machine size, providing reduces machining costs. Another benefit of bright Steel bars is a marked increase in physical strength over hot rolled bars of the same section.
