What is EN3B steel?
EN3B is a general engineering steel which is suitable in applications where heavy stresses and heat treatment are not involved. It is a bright drawn / turned mild steel with good machinability but poor hardenability, and is used in a variety of general engineering applications.
Can EN3B be welded?
EXCELLENT WELDABILITY EN3B (080A15) is commonly supplied as bright drawn bar although it can also be supplied hot rolled. It is chosen specifically for its welding capabilities as it maintains good flow and strength characteristics during and after welding.
What are the properties of bright drawn mild steel?
Bright drawn mild steel is an improved quality material, free of scale, and has been cold worked (drawn or rolled) to size. It is produced to close dimensional tolerances. Straightness and flatness are better than black steel. It is more suitable for repetition precision machining.
What is 070M20?
070M20 is a low carbon unalloyed mild steel type grade supplied in a hot rolled or bright drawn finish bar. It is a good quality machining grade offering low strength and suitability for welding.
What is bright Rod?
Bright bars are steel bars which are geometrically in precise shape and have tolerance which is tight dimensional. Its surface finish is smooth and shiny, which appears to be bright. Bright steel bars have several uses and applications. Bright bars are available in rounds, flats, hexagonal and squares.
What is the HRC of mild steel?
The Rockwell hardness of mild steel is 70 HRB.
What is the difference between bright steel and mild steel?
Bright drawn steel has more consistent hardness, and increased tensile strength. Bright steel can also be obtained in precision turned or ground form if desired.
What is EN16T?
EN16T is a high tensile steel in the T condition, it has good mechanical properties and has freedom from temper brittleness ideal for bolts, nuts, shafts and axles. Readily machinable. Popular EN16 size ranges shown here, other sizes available upon request. Cut to order. Specification BS 970: 1955.
