AISI 1548 is a medium-carbon steel with a relatively high manganese content (1.10-1.40%). It can be used in a wide range of applications in the hot-rolled, normalized, annealed, cold-worked or liquid-quenched-and-tempered condition. It combines good machinability, with good workability. Among its many uses are automotive parts, farm machinery, shafts, hand tools and springs. 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-89. Producer or source: Carbon steel mills.
