11L17 is a re-sulfurized steel that has a good surface finish and good machinability. The process is the same as 12L14 where the steel does not alloy with the lead. Lead only retains in its elemental state and it disperses inside in the steel’s structure which allows the chips to break off easier during the machining process.
This grade is steel with high-manganese but low-carbon content. It has almost all the machining features of 1212 Screw Stock but it has more improved mechanical properties. This steel also possesses good carburizing properties.
