used in applications which require hard bending and welding such as panels for appliances or automobiles. AISI 1006 carbon steel can also be used in magnet core applications.
CHQ 1008 Alloy steel wire is widely used because of its formability, durability, and weldability. Processing through cold drawing or cold rolling improves the yield strength and hardness of the material.it is used in extruded, cold headed, cold upset, and cold pressed parts and forms.
CHQ 1010 wires are used for applications such as cold headed fasteners and bolts.
1015 wire also has a wide variety of applications including internal wiring for appliance and electronic equipment, panels, meters, point-to-point wiring, wiring and cable assemblies in data and electronic equipment and many other applications.
1015 wires are used for forged motor shafts, hydraulic shafts and pump shafts, as well as machinery parts. They would be used for such applications in a surface-hardened condition.
1018 wires provides high surface hardness and a soft core to parts that include worms, dogs, pins, liners, machinery parts, special bolts, ratchets, chain pins, oil tool slips, tie rods, anchor pins, studs etc. It is used to improve drilling, machining, threading and punching processes.
1020 wires used to make truck, automotive and agricultural equipment parts such as axles, mechanical parts, cold head bolts, motor shafts, pump shafts, ratchet, light gear, gear drives, worm gear, spindle, seat bracket, crane-cable drum, motor-brake wheel, etc.
1022 wires are used to easily fabricate into self-drilling tapping screws, which are widely used for construction works. The majority of carbonitriding activity is performed to improve the wear resistance without affecting the soft, tough interior of the screws in self-drilling operation.
