1060/1070 Plow Steel

PACIFIC Plow Steel has higher carbon and therefore higher wear resistance than 1045. As the name implies this grade has been used extensively for agricultural applications. It can be forged and is weldable with adequate preheat. Different grades may be stocked within the 1060/1070 range depending on availability.
