    Aluminum Kiln Steel

Kent,

The question is about aluminum kiln steel. We are curious if it welds any different. Neither one of us have any experience with it and in fact the local shops that we buy our steel from don't know what aluminum kiln steel is. Thank you for your time and for sharing your knowledge.

The Tinman Respondeth:

AK, or Aluminum Killed or "Rim" steel is quite similar to 1018 CRS, except that the grain is finer and much more even. AK is used for spinning, draw forming, pressforming, etc. Welds very nicely. Cleaner to weld than HR or CR 1018.

Comes in different qualities (softnesses): DQ (hardest), DDQ, EDQ (softest).
