What is AISI 1060 flat bar?

Steel grade 1060 is a high-carbon steel that is used for general-purpose engineering and as structural steel. Its composition includes carbon content ranging from 0.55-0.65% and therefore falls under the category of high-carbon steel. Other than carbon, it contains 0.60-0.90% of Manganese, 0.050 of Sulfur, and 0.040% of Phosphorus. There is another kind of alloy including the Aluminium Alloy 1060 Flat Bars which comprises a minimum of 99.6% of Aluminium content. These 1060 Aluminium Alloy Flat Bars have strong corrosion resistance characteristics.

The 1060 carbon steel product which is in the shape of a flat bar is the 1060 Carbon Steel Flat Bar. With high strength, it has however low machinability, ductility, and weldability. AISI 1060 Flat Bar is used in various industrial equipment which includes axles, shafts, gear racks, hand tools, and blades.

How strong is SAE 1060 steel flats?

Being high-content carbon steel, 1060 Grade Carbon Steel is pretty good in strength and provides high levels of hardness and toughness. This high content of carbon however decreases the mechanicality of the steel by a bit which also affects the welding and ductility of the steel.

SAE 1060 Steel Flats are strong and give Tensile strength of up to 100,000 – 110,000 psi and a yield strength of 55,000 – 65,000 psi. They offer to be elongated up to 2” with a good 10 – 15% while the Brinell Hardness is recorded to be 200 – 230 BHN. These steels are applicable in industries like automotive, hand tools, military, and mining. On the other hand, Al 99.6 Flat Bars are alloys sensitive to high temperatures and a low-strength pure Aluminium alloy. Aluminium 1060-0 Flat Rods are also the products of such Aluminium alloys.

Is grade 1060 flats sharp?

1060 Carbon steel forms a great component for the manufacture of swords and sharp objects. This is because they offer great strength and provide a compromise between hardness and flexibility. SAE 1060 carbon steel forms a perfect balance because other steels are either too soft or not flexible enough.

Due to their hardness, Grade 1060 Flats are a top choice for sharp equipment like katanas and medieval swords. This carbon steel is perfect for differential tempering and is comparatively more prominent to rusting than the other carbon steels. However, with proper maintenance, rusting shouldn’t be an issue.

How do you anneal UNS G10600 flat bar?

The Steel products go through various processes as they are applied with heat treatment. After forging, the carbon steel is annealed at a certain temperature. The steel is forged between 2200 and around 1700ºF (1230 and 925ºC) after which it is transferred to a furnace held at roughly the forging finishing temperature, as a preliminary to an annealing cycle.

For annealing a steel product, such as UNS G10600 Flat Bar it is treated at temperatures ranging from 1450-1550ºF (790-840ºC). The furnace is cooled at around 50ºF (28ºC) per hour to 1200ºF (650ºC) soaked and air cooled. This gives a structure of coarse lamellar pearlite to coarse spheroid which provides optimum machinability.

AISI 1060 aluminium alloy flat bars sizes range from 23/32″ to 312″, and the hardness range is Rockwell C 60–61

What is a ASTM B221 1060 steel flat bar Good For?

Steel Grade 1060 is generally used as engineering steel for manufacturing equipment in industries that don’t require much high strength and toughness.

ASTM B221 1060 Steel Flat Bar being a medium carbon steel, is used for components of automotive engineering like axles, clutch members, shafts, pressed and punched parts, piston rods, and gear racks. It has a small cross-section requiring low tensile strength and heavy forgings.
