GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF 1018 STEEL
Below are more of the characteristics of 1018 steel that may help you in your purchase decision.
|Although chemically similar to A36 steel, the cold rolling process gives 1018 steel greater yield strength and smoother surfaces, as does the manganese in the chemical composition of 1018 steel.|
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS OF 1018 STEEL
|As mentioned above, 1018 is used most often in high volume machine applications such as welding.|
HEAT TREATMENT OF 1018 STEEL (IN FAHRENHEIT )
The 18 in 1018 stands for 0.18 percent carbon, and because there isn’t enough carbon in 1018 steel, heat treating is not recommended.
