niag lasalle


Specifications Chemistry Mechanical Properties




This is a resulphurized steel with good machinability and surface finish, but not as good as the standard screw stocks. Its case hardening characteristics are superior and it develops an excellent core. It brazes satisfactorily but has no more than fair welding properties. This is a more ductile steel than others of lower manganese content and it cold forms well. Its machinability is rated at 89% of 1212.

Shape Round, Hexagon
Grade 1117
Tolerance Meets cold finished carbon steel bar manufacturing tolerances
Application More important parts where the combined properties of good machining and superior case hardening are required, but where some machinability and finish (compared with standard screw stocks) can be sacrificed.
