Description

080M50 grade steel is a medium carbon steel offering moderate tensile strengths.

The material is capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering on limited sections, but is more commonly supplied in the untreated or normalised condition.

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

Size Range

32mm - 860mm Dia

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