AISI 1008 Steel (UNS G10080)
AISI 1008 is a low-carbon steel containing approximately 0.40% manganese that has excellent weldability and formability. AISI 1008 carbon steel is primarily used in extruded, cold headed, cold upset, and cold pressed parts and forms. AISI 1008 in the cold rolled condition is used for exposed or unexposed parts where bending, moderate drawing, forming and welding may be involved. This steel may normally be welded without special precautions using any of the standard arc or resistance welding processes. AISI 1008 is used in home appliances, furniture, and automotive applications.
