PITTSBURGH, June 8 --- In what could be one of the most important innovations in steel making in the last 30 years, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh's School of Engineering have developed a lead-free alternative to 12L14, a free machining steel commonly used throughout the world. The new steel resulted from research by Anthony J. DeArdo and C. Isaac Garcia, professors of materials science and engineering at Pitt. The research was largely supported by an international consortium of steel producers and users. According to DeArdo and Garcia, their new steel is not only more environmentally friendly, but potentially can be machined more easily than leaded steel.
