Edcon Steel Tips

  1. Edcon Steel has good selections of  common round bar sizes at certain locations.  Please feel free to browse our range online or call you local branch to check availability in your area.  We can cut to size 1045 Chrome Round Bar and ship Australia wide (subject to freight options in your area).

Other grades of Chrome Round Bars may be available but as we only stock 1045 Chrome Round Bars.  We are not able offer part lengths for grades other than 1045.  4140 High Tensile Steel is also a common grade of Chromed bar.  Edcon Steel do not stock 4140 grade Chrome Round Bar, but have access to this product through our extensive network of suppliers across Australia.  Please keep in mind when buying 4140
  3. Tolerance on cutting may also be an issue for our customers.  All our engineering bar cutting is saw cutting and there will be some variation in the face cut.  Edcon Steel standard cutting tolerance is +/- 2mm.  Cutting lists and dimensions provided by customers should allow for this tolerance.  Further processes will be required to be carried out by our customers to achieve higher tolerances than stated above.
  4. All stocked sizes of 1045 Chromed Round Bar can be cut to your sizes, so you only pay for what you need ( cutting charges will apply ).   
  5. Should you have specific requirements or specifications for your project, especially physical properties or tolerances, as well as quality requirements such as mill certificates you should email our sales team or call one of our branches to discuss your requirements prior to placing your order.  Without a specific written request no quality documents of any kind  will be provided with your goods, please ensure you request this prior to your order to avoid disappointment.  Charges may apply to provide mill certs and the like.
