What is AISI 1020 round bar?

AISI 1020 is the steels category with qualities like low hardenability and low tensile strength. The Brinell hardness number of the AISI 1020 Flat Bar is 119 – 235. Its tensile strength is 410-790 MPa. The AISI 1020 steel is primarily known for its high machinability, superior strength, exceptional ductility, and fair weldability. It has a wide range of applications in turned, polished, or cold-drawn atmospheres. AISI 1020 steels finds applications in various industries due to its property of turned and polished finish. The steels is resistant to induction and flame hardening due to its high carbon content.

Is AISI 1020 mild steel?

Yes, AISI 1020 is mild steels. The definition of mild steels refers to low-carbon steels in which the carbon content is shallow, ranging between 0.05 and 0.25%. AISI 1020 Round Bar is mild steel with a carbon content ranging between 0.18% and 0.23%. The reduced carbon content of AISI 1020 mild steels makes it machinable and weldable. It is popular among various industries for its exceptional toughness, strength, and plasticity. Although it has low carbon content, the AISI 1020 steel is known to be of high quality with average tensile strength and elongation.

What is AISI 1020 steel heat treatment?

The heat treatment methods used for 1020 steel are as follows


The Annealing process of the 1020 Steel Round Bar is possible by subjecting the alloy to 1600 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.

The above process is followed by slow furnace cooling.

Stress annealing can also be done for the alloy at 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.


The tempering process of 1020 Steel Bar can be done by subjecting the alloy to 600 to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.

The above process is followed by quenching.


The hardening of 1020 steel happens when the alloy is subjected to temperatures ranging from 1500 to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit.

What type of steel is 1020 steel round bar?

1020 steel is low-carbon steels with a carbon content of 0.17 to 0.23%. The other 1020 Carbon Steel Round Bar elements are Iron, Manganese, Phosphorus, and Sulfur. It is also referred to as mild steel because of its low carbon content. It is available in various forms like square, round, blocks, and flat bars. The 1020 steels is applicable in cold Drawn conditions and is readily weldable and formable. The 1020 steel shows resistance to induction and flame hardening. It works well with heat and cold treatment. Also, nitriding is not possible with UNS 070M20 Hot Rolled Bar.

Can 1020 steel rod be hardened?

Yes, the 1020 steels can be hardened. Quenching is also a possibility with the AISI 1020 Steel Rod. If you want to harden 1020 steels, you can subject the material to temperatures ranging from 1500 to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. The above procedure is further accompanied by water quenching, and eventually, the alloy should be tempered to achieve a hardened AISI 1020 Low Carbon Black Bar. The Brinell hardness range of 1020 steel is 119 – 235. The Rockwell Hardness of 1020 steel is 64.
