AISI 12L14 is a Standard Resulfurized and Rephosphorized grade Carbon Steel. It is a free machining steel and is commonly called AISI 12L14 Lead Steel and may be referred to by the trade name Ledloy™. Lead has been added to the chemical composition to provide an improved level of machinability. Although machinability is excellent, the added lead content reduces the overall strength of this alloy. Applications include high-speed screw machine products, spindles, bushings, hose fittings and many other items where the superior machining characteristics of this steel can be fully utilized.
