Carbon steel flat 1020 steel plate responds well to cold work and heat treating. Weldability is fair.1020 is suitable for case hardened parts where core strength is not critical.
May also be know as LCS “low carbon steel” 1020 is no longer a stocked industry standard grade, may time A-36 and 1018 are substituted for 1020, both having low carbon contents.
Shafts, lightly stressed gears, hard wearing surfaces, pins, chains and case hardened parts where core strength is not critical.
Carbon steel flat 1020 steel plate is a lesser manufactured grade of steel than 1018 steel, and many not be as readily available as 1018. Like 1018, it can come in both hot rolled or cold drawn forms, but it is typically produced as cold drawn.
It comes in many different bar shapes including squares, rounds, rectangles, and is also often manufactured into channels, angles, I-Beams and H-Beams. It is also commonly produced as a steel plate product.
Special finish drawn, ground & polished bars are usedwhere extreme precision and size accuracy, straightness and finish arenecessary. Conforms to ASTM A-108 and QQ-S-637.
Identification color: 1045 DGP or TGP – red & yellow;1141 – red & brown; Stressproof- brown& yellow/red dot; 1215 – red;1144 SRA 100 – brown & yellow/white dot.
