Summary:SAE 1018 Steel Properties
Component    Wt. %  

C: 0.14 - 0.2  
Fe: 98.81 - 99.26  
Mn: 0.6 - 0.9  
P: Max 0.04  
S: Max 0.05  

Material Notes: 
Supplied as killed, semikilled, rimmed, and capped steel. Good weldability, relatively soft and strengthen with cold work during forming or drawing. Widely used in cold forming operations such as heading, upsetting, and extrusion. Used in the as-rolled condition as bar, shapes, sheet, and strip.
