Alro's 1060 HR Plate and 1060 HR Plate DeCarbFree (DCF) - A high carbon chemistry with improved properties. This produces a plate product with better internal qualities and improved mechanical properties. This high carbon grade responds favorably to flame hardening.
1060 plate is a carbon steel that is widely used in wear rail and other applications where flame hardening, for surface hardness, is commonly used. 1060 plate is spheroidized annealed which is ideal for subsequent machining, forming, quench-and-temper heat treatment and flame hardening.
May be hardened safely by any of the conventional methods of treatment: direct heating and quenching, flame hardening and induction hardening.
The physical and thermal properties compare favorably to those of similar steels. In flame hardening, the expected hardness range is Rockwell C 60-61 regardless of section size, since only the immediate surface is affected by this process of hardening.
Advantages of 1060 HR Plate
- Fast machining
- Optimum structure for flame hardening
- Optimum structure for forming
- Ideal for quench-and-temper heat treatment
