AISI 1050 SAE

The heat treatment technical data for 1050 carbon steel slightly differs from 1074 and 1095's technical properties. The annealed and hard temperature require more heat for those specific treatments.

 

1050 Steel is a plain carbon steel containing 0.50 wt% of carbon.

* The proper drawing range and time cycles should be determined by experiment calculated to develop those properties best suited for intended end usage.

Special Note - These temperature ranges and their resultant values are given as information only and not to be followed without experimentation. However, as these steels are held to close uniformity tolerances little difficulty should be experienced.
