General Info About A1018

ASTM A1018 steel is low carbon steel that is the standard specification for heavy gauge hot rolled sheet, strip carbon, structural steel, and more. It is a general and multipurpose steel commonly used in construction and building industries to create carburized parts. The hot rolled form has better and more developed mechanical A1018 steel properties and capacities.

A1018 has a low carbon content making it very ductile and malleable. This means it has great machinability and weldability while also having high strength and toughness. This also means the steel is more workable than high carbon steel. Its A1018 steel properties mean it is somewhat resistant to rust, but not as much as some other types of steel.

More Details About A1018

  • Advantages / Disadvantages

    Advantages:

    • A1018 steel has great machinability and weldability.
    • A1018 has a good level of casehardening qualities.
    • This steel is more workable than high carbon steel.

    Disadvantages:

    • A1018 is strong, but not as strong as some higher carbon steel.
    • This steel is rust resistant, but not as resistant as some other types of steel.
  • Industries

    ASTM A1018 steel is most commonly used in the construction and construction tool industries. It is used to make carburized parts and tools. Carburized A1018 steel has gone through a heat treatment in which the steel absorbs more carbon making it a harder metal in the end. The strength increase after carburization makes the steel desirable for parts.

  • Applications

    The most common application of A1018 is carburized parts. These parts include gears, pinions, ratchets, pins, machine parts, tools, and more.

  • Machining

    ASTM A1018 is machinable. Its low carbon content makes it ductile and malleable. These are the perfect conditions for machining and forming steel.

  • Welding

    A1018 is easily welded. One the main benefits of low carbon steel is that it makes the steel somewhat softer and easier to weld. This can be done after preheating the steel, or at room temperature.

  • Heat Treatment

    Heat treatment is common with ASTM A1018 steel. It can go through a variety of heat treatments including nominal normalizing, annealing, and carburizing. A1018 is most commonly carburized for tools and parts.

More Details About A1018

  • A1018 Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled

    Hot rolled pickled and oiled A1018 steel is ASTM a1018 steel that has gone through the hot rolling process and the pickling and oiling process. Hot rolling means the steel is heated to a high temperature and rolled out flat. Pickling and oiling means the steel is processed to remove surface impurities by using a combination of acid and oil.

  • A1018 Hot Rolled Dry

    A1018 hot rolled dry steel is a1018 steel that has been hot rolled, but not pickled and oiled. This means the steel goes through the hot rolling process where it is heated to an extremely high temperature then rolled out flat. This steel has more surface imperfections than HRPO A1018.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is A1018 steel?

    ANSWER:

    ASTM A1018 steel is low carbon steel that is the standard specification for heavy gauge hot rolled sheet, strip carbon, structural steel, and more.

  • What is hot rolled pickled and oiled steel?

    Hot rolled pickled and oiled steel is steel that has been hot rolled and then pickled and oiled. The hot rolled steel is first sent through acid to remove any surface imperfections, and then after the steel has dried it is oiled to prevent rust from forming.
