Re: AISI 12L14 Steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I'm surprised that 12L14 is being used for a civil / structural application.    The main benefit of 12L14 is it's machinability compared to other low carbon steels.......a production / screw machine material.

Thanks Bob.
At this time I am checking an item that calls for material diams up to about 3", but I'll try some suppliers directly.

I'm sure there are properties avaible for larger diameters because larger diameter material is available to purchase.

McMaster has 12L14 per ASTM A108 up to 4"

has cold drawn 12L14 up to 5 1/2" diameter 

so if you were to buy material from either one of these suppliers I'm sure they could provide chemical & physical certs for the material

I could not find an online source for the mechanical properties for 12L14 in sizes larger than 38mm (1.5")

Unless someone else has them I think you're looking at trip to the library or offering to purchase the info from a material supplier or producer.

I have data for drawn diams 19 to 38mm.  Does any one know if there is are available properties for greater diams?
