1022 steel is typically used for moderate strength structural applications such as cold formed fasteners and bolts. It is often used in the case hardened condition
1022 steel has good ductility and is readily formed by conventional means.
Weldable by all standard methods. However for heavy sections the use of pre-heat and post- heat is advised.
1022 may be hardened by heating to 1500 - 1600 F and water quenching. The product should then be tempered. However for a low carbon steel such as this the improvement in strength from heat treat, quench and temper often are not cost effective in terms of the heat treating cost.
Forge at 2350 to 1800 F.
Hot work at 900 to 200 F.
A full anneal is done at 1700 F with slow furnace cooling. A stress relief anneal may be done at 1000 F.
Specific Gravity: 7.86
Melting Point: 2760
