AISI W1 drill rod is a 1% carbon water hardening tool steel that has superior machinability over all the other tool steel drill rods. W1 provides good wear resistance and toughness for the short run, but will not give tool life as extensive as O-1. W1 drill rod is produced in a ground and polished condition, with a fine surface finish better than 40 micro inches. Supplied in standard 36" lengths.

AISI W1 conforms to ASTM A-686-79, SAE J-439, QQ-T- 580 RevC
