1215 Cold Drawn Steel Bar

Cold drawn 1215 steel bar is resulfurized and rephosphorized carbon steel. This grade is considered free machining, having excellent machinability due to its added sulfur, phosphorus. This grade, also referred to as “screw stock”, is heavily utilized for automatic screw machine operations. It’s also ideal for parts that require heavy machining and bright finishes. Due to its low carbon, this material has lower strength than other cold drawn grades. Eaton Steel Bar Company stocks several diameters of this grade to meet your demands quickly. We also supply 1215 cold drawn bar to various industries like construction, automotive, and more.
