They share alloy composition and many physical properties but develop different mechanical properties as a result of different processing.
1045 cold rolled steel properties.
The carbon content is what really separates the chemical composition of 1018 and 1045 with 1045 steel having a higher carbon composition.
Aisi 1045 steel has a low through hardening capability with only sections of around 60 mm in size being recommended as suitable for tempering and through hardening.
The physical properties of aisi 1045 carbon steel are tabulated below.
Read our pdf on cold finished steel bar for more information.
The cross sectional area of the hot rolled bar is then cold reduced for accurate size and smooth surface.
A wide range of properties can be obtained.
It can be treated by annealing flame treatment or induction hardening.
C1045 is also known as 1045 cold rolled steel cold worked and 1045 hot rolled steel.
Astm sae aisi 1045 steel is one of the commonly used medium carbon steels with an average carbon content of 0 45 medium tensile properties good strength toughness and wear resistance.
A carbon steel like 1330 for example has a much higher concentration of manganese.
Respond to heat treatment and flame and induction hardening but not recommended for carburizing or cyaniding.
Whether a steel is hot rolled or cold drawn determines many of the mechanical properties.
Whether steel is cold drawn or hot rolled plays a huge factor in the mechanical properties of steel.
For each property being compared the top bar is cold drawn sae aisi 1045 and the bottom bar is hot rolled sae aisi 1045.
Alro steel stocks 1045 steel bar and with over 50 physical locations in 12 states we are able to service many customers with fast delivery.
