It is considered as the steel with the highest machinability, 60% higher compared to 1212 steel (100%) according to SAE J414a, the machinability is due to the combination of sulfur, manganese and lead; The latter allows the possibility of cuts of greater depth and speed, greatly improving the surface finish of the components made with this steel, with low forgeability, both hot and cold, and low weldability compared to other carbon steels. , such as 1008, 1018, 1045, etc.
