Machinability and other Processes

12L14 Carbon is a premium free cutting steel grade suitable for all types of high production and repetition machining. Not only that, but it is also for general purpose machining. Carbon steel in its natural state that has been desulfurized and phosphorized is what this is.

Lead is also used to improve the machinability of the material, which means it can be bent, riveted, or crimped with greater ease. It is important to remember that it is significantly weaker than carbon steels due to its increased ductility and machinability.


12L14 is undoubtedly a big help in many industries because of its incredible characteristics. Aerospace, automotive, and a variety of other fields. Also, wheel nuts, padlocks, axles, shackles, and gearbox components are just some of the many applications.
