En1a Leaded Steel
En1a Leaded Steel are low carbon free cutting engineering mild steels. It has additional sulphur and lead added so as to enable easy machining. They are most suitable and used mainly in automatic and CNC machines in bright form. It is also used extensively in automatic screw machines / traub machines for manufacturing parts requiring considerable machining and close tolerances. It gives superior finish. One of the major used is to make hydraulic pipe fittings.
The addition of lead plus the high sulphur and phosphorous levels form a lubricating effect. This results in extremely improved machinability with little affect on the mechanical properties.
Welding is not recommended due to high sulphur and lead content.
En1APb / 230M07Pb will electroplate but is not suitable for hot dip galvanising.
