SAE 10053 is an oil or water-hardening machinery and tool steel for applications where a shallow-hardening steel of high strength with moderate toughness meets the requirements. It is commonly used for parts where induction hardening or austempering are employed. SAE 1053 is recommended for agricultural machinery and tools, hand tools, shafts, springs and heavy-machinery parts. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: CS-70. Producer or source: Carbon steel mills.
