1045 TG&P

Alro stocks C1045 TG&P (Turned Ground and Polished) Steel - a medium carbon steel used extensively in induction hardening applications. 1045 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. This material has been turned, ground and polished for a nicer finish and tighter diameter tolerance.
