12l14 Steel

Enhance your production with 12L14 steel – the material of choice.

Discover the benefits of 12L14 steel

Machinable, weldable, and strong: the advantages of 12L14 steel.

It is a type of carbon steel that has undergone the process of desulfurization and phosphorization. Lead is also added to enhance machinability, allowing for bending, riveting, or crimping.

However, it is essential to note that 12l14 carbon steel is significantly weaker compared to other equivalent carbon steel alloys due to its higher ductility and machinability. It is commonly used in products such as high-speed screw machines and other types of high-speed machinery.
