This chromium nickel molybdenum alloy is primarily a carburizing grade capable of attaining high case hardness with high core strength and toughness. Its high alloy content makes it suitable for components with relatively heavy sections. The combination of high alloy content and low carbon makes it possible to achieve a high core hardness with a narrow hardness range between heavier and thinner sections.
It is an alloy that offers strength with excellent toughness and ductility, and it may be used to advantage without carburizing. Carburized, a highly wear resistant case is produced which is useful in extremely difficult applications.
The AIRCRAFT QUALITY grade is produced following the best electric furnace steel making ...
