Machinability and other Processes

12L14 steel bar stock is an excellent choice for high production and repetition machining, making it perfect for both specialized and general purpose applications. The steel is naturally desulfurized and phosphorized, but lead is added to enhance its machinability.

The material can be easily bent, riveted, or crimped. However, it is weaker than other carbon steels due to its increased ductility and machinability.
