Thickness 1/2, 8620 Hot Rolled Alloy Steel - Plates

These are "triple alloy" carburizing steels. The nickel imparts good toughness and ductility, and the chromium and molybdenum contribute increased hardness penetration and wear. They are readily carburized, and the well-balanced alloy content permits hardening to produce a strong, tough core and high case hardness. They have excellent machinability and respond well to polishing operations. Because of the fine combination of properties that may be developed, as well as the ease with which it may be processed, this material is ideal for a wide variety of applications.

In the leaded analysis, machinability is improved without the sacrifice of other desirable properties, with the exception that the use of this material is not recommended for applications over 400°F since at elevated temperature ductility is low.

The analysis of the leaded grade is the same as above, with the addition of .15/.35 Lead (Pb).

Gears, pinions, spline shafts, piston pins, oil pump piston rods and liners, cams, oil tool slips, gauges, jigs, plastic molds, jaws, etc.

Easily welded by any of the common welding procedures, with the rod to be used dependent upon the section, design, service requirements, etc. Preheating and stress-relieving is recommended. When welding leaded material, adequate ventilation should be provided to prevent accumulation of fumes.
