Description C60 is one of the higher carbon content (0.60%) steels. It is more difficult to fabricate than the lower carbon grades. Applications Applications include hand tools such as screwdrivers, pliers and similar items. Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 210 Density [g/cm3]: 7.85 Thermal conductivity [W/m.K]: 46.6 Electric resistivity [Ohm mm2/m]: 0.127 Specific heat capacity[J/g.K]: 0.46 Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion 10-6 oC-1
Soft Annealing Heat to 680-710oC, cool slowly in furnace. This will produce a maximum Brinell hardness of 241. Normalizing Normalizing temperature: 820-860oC/air. Hardening Harden from a temperature of 800-840oC followed by water or oil quenching. Tempering Tempering temperature: 550-660oC/air. Mechanical Properties in Hardened+Tempered Condition

Diagram Tempering Temperature – Mechanical Properties Click the image to enlarge the diagram. Forging Hot forming temperature: 1100-800oC. Machinability Machinability of C60 and all of the higher carbon steels is relatively poor. C60 rates at 55 to 60 % that of the AISI 1112 steel which is considered 100% machinable. Corrosion Resistance This steel is not corrosion resistant. it will rust unless protected. Welding C60 may be welded by all of the conventional methods. However both pre-heat and post-heat should be used when welding by an approved procedure. Pre-heat at 260 to 320oC and post-heat at 650 to 780oC. Cold working Cold working is difficult even in the annealed condition although it may be done by conventional methods but requires greater force than the lower carbon steels.
