K1045 / K1045 steel is a medium carbon steel that has an ultimate tensile strength in the range of 550 to 700 MPa. This steel is easily machined and can be either induction hardened or flame hardened. Commonly used in a range of industry sectors, the properties of K1045 steel make it ideal for applications that require a reasonable amount of strength and wear resistance. As a result, items such as axles, bolts, rods, hydraulic clamps, pins, rolls, studs, shafts and spindles are often constructed using 1045 steel.

Our Service

We are proud to be a trusted supplier of k1042 and k1045 steel in Melbourne and across Australia. If required, we also offer a range of other services, including profile cutting and post-cutting services. Whether you need your plate folded/rolled, drilled, wash-ground and/or stress relieved, we can ensure this is completed to your exact specifications. Meanwhile, 1045 steel heat treatment will depend on factors such as work piece size/shape and the quenching medium.
