Carbon 12L14 in bar
SPECIFICATIONS: GRADE CARBON 12L14, AISI 12L14, UNS G12144
Castle Metals stocks a wide range of Carbon 12L14 in bar, both round and hexagon. Our distribution network includes warehouses in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K, France, Singapore, and Shanghai. When customers call us about 12L14, a lot of times they say they are pressured to take costs out of their process. When we hear these sorts of things, sometimes it makes sense to talk about EDI (electronic data interchange) to reduce the costs that the transactions generate.
Carbon 12L14 is the most widely used leaded, rephosphorized and resulfurized screw machine grade carbon steel. 12L14 is utilized best for parts where significant machining is necessary. ProCut® 12L14 has controlled chemistry for enhanced machinability. ProCut® 12L14 has high ductility making it easy for bending or riveting.
Grade 12L14 with Te or Se uses the addition of Tellurium or Selenium to 12L14 to produce further improvements in machining performance. These trace elements promote the formation of desirable globular sulfide inclusions, increasing chip breakage and further improving machinability.
