SAE 1345 is a through-hardening, manganese alloy steel with intermediate hardenability. It is most commonly used where good strength is needed but low-to-medium toughness is sufficient. Its wide range of uses in tools and machinery includes hand tools, gears, shafts, bolts and housings. 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: SA-425. Producer or source: Alloy steel mills and foundries.
