Description

080A42 grade steel is a medium carbon steel capable of achieving moderate tensile strengths by normalising or quenching and tempering.

Machinability similar to that of mild steel can be expected, however weldability is reduced.

Typical applications of 080A42 grade steel

  • Axles
  • Spindles
  • Studs
  • Automotive components
  • General engineering components

080A42 steel is still often referred to as EN8D steel - its equivalent grade under the previous BS 970: 1955 standard.
