Is L80 grade steel always 4140?

or can it also be 4130, 4145, 410, 420, or something else?

  • Any grade can be produced to meet the properties of spec L80, including 4130, 4340, etc

    The steel grade will set the alloy requirements, and API 80 will set the physical requirements.

    The properties requirements of spec L80 are:

    API L80

    Minimum Yield Strength: 80,000 psi

    Maximum Yield Strength: 95,000 psi

    Minimum Tensile Strength: 95,000 psi

    Hardness Requirement: 23 HRC maximum

    Notes: Manufactured to API specification 5CT. This is a controlled yield strength material with a hardness testing requirement. L80 is usually used in wells with sour (H2S) environments.
