Machinability & Welding

It has good weldability characteristics. The machinability of the leaded grade is improved without sacrificing any of the other desirable properties, except that using this material for applications above 400°F is not recommended because ductility is low at high temperatures.

86l20 Steel Applications

Gauges, gears, crankshafts, oil pumps, and spline shafts are just some of the many applications of 86l20 Carbon.

86l20 is commonly used in the construction industry. It is a type of alloy steel that has a high strength to weight ratio and can be easily welded and machined. It is a low alloy, low carbon content, and normalized steel with excellent toughness and ductility. The material has good corrosion resistance and formability at room temperature.

The most common use cases for the 86l20  are structural components of bridges, buildings, cranes, cars, and ships. 86l20 has many advantages over other steels. It can be used in many different applications, such as cutting tools, construction materials, and machine parts.

86l20 is widely used in the construction industry for structural purposes and in the automotive industry for engine components. It can also be found in other industries like mining, oil drilling, etc. The properties of this type of steel make it ideal for use in environments where corrosive chemicals are present or where it undergoes extreme temperatures.
