In this post I'll talk about SAE 1059. First let's describe it and then have a look at its material's properties.
What is SAE 1059?SAE 1059 is a medium carbon steel with 0.59% carbon content, approximately.
ApplicationThere is no known commercial application. However, they may be used in rails, gears and parts requiring high strength and hardness.
