12L14 Steel Bar - CF

12L14 Cold Finish Carbon Steel Round Bar is a low friction metal that maintains a smooth, machined surface, allowing for increased tool life. This grade of carbon steel is recommended for the manufacturing of high-speed automatic screw machine parts. This standard resulfurized and rephosphorized low carbon steel benefits from the addition of tiny lead particles, providing enhanced machinability. Although 12L14 CF Bar provides excellent machinability, the added lead content reduces the overall strength of the alloy.
