SAE 1025 is a plain carbon steel for general-purpose construction and engineering. It is used in the hot-worked, cold-worked, normalized or water-quenched-and-tempered condition. It also is carburized and used for case-hardened parts. Its many uses include bolts, forgings, axles, machinery components, cold-extruded parts, pressure vessels, case-hardened parts, chain and sprocket assemblies, spinning tools and permanent-mold castings. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: CS-114. Producer or source: Carbon steel mills.
