Bright Steel Round Bars

Bright Steel Round Bars


Bright steel round bars are cylindrical steel bars with a polished surface finish. They undergo processes like cold drawing, cold rolling, and polishing to create a smooth, reflective surface finish. This finish distinguishes them from standard black or rough steel bars. Bright steel round bars come in various diameters and are made from different types of steel, including carbon steel, alloy steel, or stainless steel. Commonly used in manufacturing precision components such as shafts and fasteners, their smooth finish also makes them suitable for decorative applications.


Uses of bright steel round bars include construction, tool manufacturing, automotive parts, agricultural equipment, oil and gas, marine, household appliances, machinery, railways, bolts, screws, propeller shafts and precision engineering.


One of the common bright mild steel grades used for bright steel round bars is AISI 1020. AISI 1020, which is equivalent to JIS S20C, is a low carbon steel with good machinability and weldability. It is widely used in manufacturing and construction where moderate strength and good formability are required. AISI 1020 has excellent machinability, making it suitable for a variety of machining processes such as turning, milling, drilling, and tapping. AISI 1020 is suitable for making precision components that benefit from a smooth surface finish and tight dimensional tolerances.
