AISI 1141 is a resulfurized carbon steel containing nominally 1.50% manganese and 0.08-0.13% sulfur to give it free-machining characteristics. It has relatively low hardenability. Its ductility and toughness are fairly good in the longitudinal direction but tend to be low in the transverse direction. It is highly recommended for high-production automatic-machine products. Among its many uses are screws, bolts, ball joints, spindles and light-duty gears. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and tensile properties. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: CS-93. Producer or source: Carbon steel mills.
