Steel C45 / AISI 1045

C45 steel is one of the main construction steels thanks to the excellent compromise between strength and toughness characteristics. It lends itself to the creation of hard and tenacious mechanical components such as pins, gears and moulds.

  • Good mix of toughness and endurance

  • Possibility of hardening to have a surface hardening

  • Low chemical resistance

C45 steel has an average carbon content and is one of the most widely used remediation steels. It lends itself to surface hardening to obtain a homogeneously hard surface. It is the most popular among construction steels thanks to its properties and competitive cost.
