1045 Hot Rolled Steel Properties and Specifications

 C1045 is a tough work hardening steel that is regularly utilized for numerous industrial applications that require steel that is strong and easily managed. Hot Rolled Steel C1045 is silicon killed with a higher carbon content for increased strength. The strength can be improved in the lighter and medium thickness via heat treatment. This steel alloy also provides good machinability, while forming and welding properties are not as profound as other steels. It should be noted that welding is not recommended in the through hardened or flame induction hardened condition.

Tensile Strength:          81,900 PSI
Yield Strength:              45,000 PSI
Elongation:                   16%
