Capital Steel & Wire is a distributor of 86L20 grade cold drawn steel bar stock. 86L20 steel is one of the most widely used carburizing alloys, as it has high case hardness and a strong tough core. This steel adds a great finish, tool life, and machinability, and increases parts production up to 25%. The 86L20 is heat treated to achieve optimal hardness and case depth. The added nickel gives the 86L20 excellent ductility and toughness.
