A fine grained, vacuum degassed carbon steel that is easily machined, has excellent weldability, and responds uniformly to case hardening.Long cutting tool life, fine finish, fast production and low machining costs. Thoroughly stressed relieved. Savings up to 60 percent over tool steel flat stock.Manganese content provides greater strength compared to many other carbon steels. Often used in its natural state for backup and stripper plates, punch pads and machine parts. When case hardened, steel is ideal for jigs, fixtures, cams and patterns. For parts that do not require heat treated steels; use soft or case hardended. Full length identification avoids confusion with other steels.
