SAE 1020 is a low-carbon steel combining good machinability, workability and weldability. It is carburized for use in case-hardened components and it is used for a wide range of applications in the hot-worked, cold-worked, normalized or quenched-and-tempered conditions. Its many uses include bolts, rods, plate applications, machinery components, case-hardened parts, spinning tools and trimming dies. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on low temperature performance and corrosion resistance as well as heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: CS-113.
