1080

1080 is a very simple forgiving steel and great for a beginner! It has a wide heat treatment cycle allowing a wide margin of error to! Supplied in 600mm long pieces. We suggest for heat treating it:-

Forging:  Heat to 2150 °F (1175 °C). Do not forge below 1500 °F (815 °C)

Normalizing: Heat to 1600 °F (870 °C). Cool in still air. Follow up with other refinement cycles.

Hardening: Austenitize- Heat no higher than 1500 °F (815 °C). In thicker sections can be quenched in water or brine with extreme care but can also be oil quenched in sections under 1/4 in. (6.35 mm) thick as the preferred method.

Tempering:  As-quenched hardness of approximately 65 HRC. Hardness can be adjusted downward by proper tempering
