0.61max. 0.400.75max. 0.40max. 0.10max. 0.40--(Cr+Mo+Ni)= max. 0.63


Applications
Applications include hand tools such as screwdrivers, pliers and similar items.  

Physical properties (average values) at ambient temperature:
Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 210  
Density [g/cm3]: 7.85 Thermal conductivity [W/m.K]: 46.6  
Electric resistivity [Ohm mm2/m]: 0.127

Soft Annealing
Heat to 680-710oC, cool slowly in the furnace. This will produce a maximum Brindle hardness of 241. Normalizing: 


Normalizing temperature

820-860oC/air


Hardening

Harden from a temperature of 800-840oC followed by water or oil quenching.

Tempering

Tempering temperature: 550-660oC/air.

Forging

Hot forming temperature: 1100-800oC.  

Machinability

Machinability of C60 and all of the higher carbon steels is relatively poor. C60 rates at 55 to 60 % that of the AISI 1112 steel which is considered 100% machinable.  


Corrosion Resistance

This steel is not corrosion resistant, it will rust unless protected.


Welding

C60 may be welded by all of the conventional methods. However, both pre-heat and post-heat should be used when welding by an approved procedure. Pre-heat at 260 to 320oC and post-heat at 650 to 780oC.

Cold working

Cold working is difficult even in the annealed condition, it may be done by conventional methods, but requires greater force than the lower carbon steels. Forms manufactured, Please see the Dimensional Sales Program.
