AVIATIONEU NEW ERA AISI...
SAE AISI(*) 1018 (G10180**) (separately presented) & 1020 (G10200**) mild/low carbon steel grades are are iron alloys with basically identical composition. Please refer to the supplied documentation for the comparison of SAE AISI 1018/1020 steel properties and additional information provided at the Product Description section. Technical data of supplied materials should be used ONLY FOR REFERENCE, NOT FOR DESIGN, and any decisions on their use remain entirely at the buyer discretion.
SAE AISI 1020 steel, aka C1020 steel in cold worked condition, is one of the most commonly used plain carbon steels. It is a low hardness and tensile strength carbon steel alloy with Brinell hardness ranging between 119 - 235 and tensile strength between 410 - 790 MPa. It features high machinability, high strength, high ductility and good weldability by most welding processes supporting its use in all industrial sectors. Due to its low carbon content, it is resistant to induction hardening or flame hardening but carburization or carbon nitriding can be applied to achieve a hardness value of more than Rc65. Normally used in turned and polished or cold drawn conditions.
Sourced from quality producers, SAE AISI 1020 steel tubes are offered as part of our own branded (AVIATIONEU NEW ERA) product lines. They can be furnished Normalized, Annealed or in other conditions, in different specifications, different shapes (cross sections), round, square, rectangular, etc. and dimensions in inches or millimeters (depending on the supplier) to meet project requirements. In the case of Metric round tubes, they are cold drawn seamless tubes available in different outer diameters and wall thicknesses in mm and pre cut or cut to order lengths in meters or centimeters. Those in inch system are offered as DOM (Drawn Over a Mandrel***), with outer diameters and wall thicknesses in inches and lenghts in inches or feet. Although they are welded tubes, the weld line becomes nearly undetectable during the manufacturing process and they are often referred to as seamless. Appearing prices for pre cut tubes are per piece in indicated dimensions.
