AISI 1541 is a medium-carbon steel containing relatively high manganese (1.35-1.65%). It is characterized by a combination of good machinability and good workability. It may be used in the hot-rolled, annealed, normalized, cold-worked or liquid-quenched-and-tempered condition for numerous applications. Its high manganese content provides increased hardenability which is reflected in increased strength. 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, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: CS-75. Producer or source: Carbon steel mills.
