Hot Roll Plate – 1045
1045 is a medium carbon steel which responds well to heat treatment. Through heat treatment a wide range of properties can be obtained in the metal. Being a medium carbon steel it is weldable but may require preheating before welding. 1045 is beneficial for uses where higher degrees of accuracy and straightness are required. The tensile strength of 1045 is 95,000 psi with 56,000 psi yield strength and 21% elongation in 2?. Due to its stronger nature it is applicable for general purposes. It is used in any industry sector where applications require more strength and wear than low carbon steel provides and where the low alloy high tensile strength metals are not required. Some on the common applications for this steel are pinions, bolts, shafts, gears, etc.
