AISI 1010

AISI 1010 is a low-carbon steel alloy with 0.10% carbon content. It is known for its relatively low strength and low ductility, however it can be quenched and tempered to increase strength. Machineability of 1010 carbon steel is considered to be fairly good. AISI 1010 is commonly used for cold headed fasteners, rivets and bolts, in addition to structural, construction and automotive applications such as fenders, pans, nails and transmission covers.

At Precision Steel Warehouse, our selection of low carbon steel including low carbon steel sheets, strip steel, special accuracy strip, shim steel and flat wire steel meet the AISI 1010 standards.
