A-2 Drill Rod

A-2 Drill Rod

Our A-2 Drill Rod is air-hardening ground and polished. This grade can be used to replace O-1 for applications for safer heat treating, less distortion during hardening and greater wear resistance. This grade will show about 75% less movement during heat treating than with O-1. Machinability,with A-2, is equal to, or better than, either oil or air-hardening manganese-type die steels in many applications. Tolerances are:
1/2' to 2' +/- 0.001
.0499 to .125 +/- 0.0005
0.124 & Smaller +/- 0.0003
