12L14 Cold Finish Carbon Steel Round


12L14_carbon_steel_round

12L14 carbon steel is a resulfurized and rephosphorized low carbon steel with lead added resulting in one of the fastest machining grades available. 12L14 possesses very low friction resulting in a smooth machined surface and increased life. The lead allows the material to break up into smaller chips during machining reducing entanglement and friction, allowing higher machining speeds - perfect for automatic screw machine parts. Due to high sulphur content it is not considered weldable. 12L14 will respond to conventional heat treating but are not considered case hardening. Better results can be obtained by using 1018 in that case. Applications include: screw machine products, bushings, couplings, inserts and parts involving bending and crimping.
