  • Limited welding and forming capabilities due to high sulphur content.
  • Will electroplate but not suitable for hot dip galvanising.
  • Can be carburised to produce components with enhanced wear resistance.
  • Most suitable for the manufacture of repetition turned components, e.g. bolts, hydraulic fittings and studs, particularly where intricate drilling and machining operations are involved.
