High Strength Materials

SHEFFIELD™ CD – (4140 mod.) Cold Finished, Annealed Alloy Bar

Proprietary Alloy Chemistry - not a carbon steel product, nor, what many consider "cold roll", which may be 1018 or 1045.

High Strength - exhibits excellent resistance to fatigue when compared to carbon steel. Ideal for many maintenance applications where a higher degree of toughness is required.

Mechanical Properties - cold drawing is cold working and as a result an increase in both tensile and yield strengths is achieved.

Machined Straightened - one half the industry standard; 1/8" in any 5 feet.

Wear Resistant - capabilities far exceed that of "cold roll" steels. Can be further heat treated to higher hardness levels of Rockwell "C" 58/60 either through selective surface hardening or through-hardness.

Improved Performance - offers a significant increase in overall reliability as compared to "cold roll" steels, which may be 1018, 1020, 1045, and 1060 grade carbon steels. Sheffield CD is a high strength alloy material.

Single largest selection of cold drawn alloy shapes in one location in North America.

Sheffield CD and Redi-Rail are approved and specified for all forms of transfer rails, guide rails, and "NC" blocks in the automotive, food processing, major appliance and material handling industries.
