It has a higher manganese content than certain other low carbon grades, such as 1020. With higher manganese, 1018 is better steel for carburized parts, since it produces a harder and more uniform case. It also has higher mechanical properties and better machinability due to the cold drawing process. Most 1018 is produced by cold drawing. Cold drawing increases tensile and yield strength but decreases ductility.
Cold drawing also increases torsional strength, surface hardness and wear resistance.
