Surcharge Information

Due to the UK’s mostly commonly recognised surcharge mechanism no longer being openly published to the UK market we are unable to provide specific surcharge information on our website at this stage.

We are currently working with our suppliers to establish alternative mechanisms in order to provide a comprehensive and transparent view of global surcharge variations.

Look out for our improved surcharge pages appearing in the coming weeks.

Description

070M55 grade steel is a medium carbon steel with good tensile strength.

Although this grade is capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering on limited sections, it is more commonly supplied in the untreated or normalised condition.

It possesses good wear resistance, but poor weldability.

Size Range

32mm - 860mm Dia

Typical applications of 070M55 grade steel

  • Gears
  • Cylinders
  • Cams

070M55 steel is still often referred to as EN9 steel - its equivalent grade under the previous BS 970: 1955 standard.
