LF2 - Low Carbon-Manganese Steel

Surcharge

Both Scrap and most alloys saw a small increase going into April, meaning surcharges for the majority of grades increased slightly.

Nickel has been rising steadily (albeit not significantly) in recent weeks and therefore we would expect to see this filter through to the surcharges in the coming weeks.

Surcharge information as listed via Liberty Speciality Steels where possible, other based on mean chemical analysis for the given grade.

Description

LF2 grade steel is a general carbon steel which is readily weldable and possesses good impact resistance.

The material is capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering on limited sections, but is more commonly supplied in the normalised condition.

Machinability is similar to that of mild steel.

Typical applications of LF2 grade steel

  • Flanges
  • Fittings
  • Applications for cold temperature service where corrosion is not a concern
