1144 steel bar, known as stress-proof metal, is a carbon-manganese grade renowned for its ability to develop high tensile properties when subjected to severe cold working.
The stress-relieved 1144 carbon steel, after cold drawing, undergo treatment to minimize the risk of warping during machining. This stainless steel grade exhibits exceptional characteristics such as hardness and high strength even without heat treatment.
Unlike regular steels, 1144 carbon steel offers a remarkable combination of minimal warping, good wear resistance, and excellent machinability. As a medium carbon, free-cutting, resulfurized steel, it responds well to heat treatment. Its high manganese and carbon content provide wear resistance and strength.
1144 steel bar can be cold rolled or drawn, and its improved mechanical properties make it ideal for applications like screw machines and induction hardened parts. Some common applications include:
The steel is popular in structural applications due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, affordability, and recyclability. It boasts a high yield strength, making it resistant to bending or breaking. Additionally, it offers excellent corrosion resistance, making it suitable for environments with corrosive chemicals.
The 1144 steel bar finds diverse applications in constructing building frames, forming construction materials like concrete, reinforcing beams for bridges and buildings, and manufacturing machine parts such as cranes and drills.
Known for its superior strength, excellent machinability, and corrosion resistance, 1144 steel bar is highly versatile and finds use in various applications.
Benefits of using the 1144 carbon steel include:
At PGB, we offer 1144 carbon steel in round bar options. Our 1144 steel bar undergo electromagnetic testing using eddy currents. You can expect additional benefits such as stress and fatigue resistance, minimal warpage, distortion, and balanced performance.
