1045 is a medium carbon steel used extensively in induction hardening applications. This is not normally considered a screw machine steel and is only fair for brazing and welding. However, it can be forged satisfactorily and is the most common shafting steel in the medium carbon range.
A36 is produced to a 36 ksi min yield point. A mild carbon steel with many uses that works well for fabricating, welding, bending and cold forming.
1018 is a general purpose low carbon steel with good case hardening qualities. It is especially suited to cold forming and bending operations and has excellent weldability.
1045 is a medium carbon steel used extensively in induction hardening applications. This is not normally considered a screw machine steel and is only fair for brazing and welding. 1045 hot rolled can be used for applications requiring more strength and wear resistance than the low carbon mild steels can provide.
303 is a free-machining variation of 304. The addition of sulfur for better machinability makes this a favorite for use in automatic screw machines. Corrosion resistant to atmospheric exposures, as well as a wide range of chemicals; most dyes, foods and nitric acid.
304 The most widely used of the austenitic grades, 304 offers good corrosion resistance to many chemicals and industrial atmospheres. Generally considered non-magnetic, it can become slightly magnetic when cold-worked. 304 is non-hardenable by heat treatment. In 304L, the carbon content has been lowered to .03% max. for corrosion resistance at heat affected zones from welding.
316L is an austenitic chrome nickel steel with superior corrosion resistance to that of other chrome nickel steels. Widely used when exposed to chemical corrodents, as well as marine atmospheres. 316L is generally considered non-magnetic, but can become magnetic when cold worked. In 316L, the carbon content has been lowered to .03% max. for corrosion resistance at heat affected zones from welding.
