Bright Steel Flat Bars

Bright Steel Flat Bars


Bright steel flat bar refers to a type of steel bar that has been processed to have a smooth, shiny, and polished surface finish. The term “bright” in this context indicates the bright, reflective appearance of the steel after undergoing certain finishing processes. The manufacturing process typically involves cold drawing or cold rolling, followed by additional processes such as polishing or grinding to achieve the desired smooth and reflective surface. This type of steel bar is often used in applications where a polished and aesthetically pleasing finish is desired, such as in architectural and decorative elements, as well as in certain industrial and manufacturing applications.


Uses of bright steel flat bars include construction, architectural elements, handrails, decorative purposes, manufacturing, machinery, tools, equipment and fabrication.


One of the common bright mild steel grades used for bright steel flat bars is AISI 1018. AISI 1018 is a standard low-carbon steel grade, often referred to as “mild steel” or “low carbon steel”. It belongs to the AISI 1000 series of carbon steel grades. AISI 1018 is suitable for cold forming and bending operations. It is known for its good combination of strength, ductility, and machinability, making it suitable for various processes such as drilling, turning, milling, and grinding. Common applications of AISI 1018 include shafts, bolts, studs, pins, and parts where good machinability and weldability are required.
