498 Low Carbon Flat Stock

498 Low carbon steel is used where deep hardening is not necessary. It can, however, can be carburized or case hardened. It is substantial less expensive than tool steel ground flat stock. Standard size: +/-.001” thickness tolerance.

Features

  • Substantial cost reductions over tool steel ground flat stock. There are savings up to 60% because this is a low carbon steel and furnished in 24" lengths. This means that you get one-third more steel at less cost
  • Ideal for a wide variety of parts that don’t require more expensive heat treated steels, such as stripper plates, jigs, fixtures, machine and component parts, templates, etc.
  • This steel can be carburized or case hardened. After hardening, its physical properties, especially tensile strength, yield point, and Brinell hardness, are substantially higher
  • NOTE Thicknesses of 1/8" and under are made from AISI 1010 material
  • The Starrett Company uses its own ground flat stock for many of its precision tool parts
  • Furnished in 24" (610mm) lengths, ground straight and parallel.
