4140 Annealed (LPA) Cold Drawn Steel Bar

Annealed, cold drawn 4140 steel bar is a medium carbon, chromium-molybdenum steel with high hardenability. It is softened from the mill structure, to a pearlite structure, prior to cold drawing. This improves the ductility and can help improve machinability. Eaton Steel Bar Company stocks many diameters of 4140 LPA cold drawn steel to meet the market demand. ASTM specifications are generally applicable for cold drawn 4140 LPA steel bars.
