Product Features & Applications
- The addition of lead plus the high sulphur and phosphorous levels form a lubricating effect resulting in consistently excellent levels of machinability with little effect on the mechanical properties of this low carbon steel.
- Welding is not recommended due to high sulphur and lead content.
- Will electroplate but not suitable for hot dip galvanising.
- Used extensively for high speed production and/or repetition work for manufacturing of parts requiring rapid machining and maximum tool life, e.g. bushes, pins, couplings, nuts and various machined components.
