100Cr6 - 1% Chromium-Molybdenum High Carbon Through Hardening Steel

Surcharge

Both Scrap and most alloys saw a small increase going into April, meaning surcharges for the majority of grades increased slightly.

Nickel has been rising steadily (albeit not significantly) in recent weeks and therefore we would expect to see this filter through to the surcharges in the coming weeks.

Surcharge information as listed via Liberty Speciality Steels where possible, other based on mean chemical analysis for the given grade.

Description

100Cr6 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.

Typical applications of 100Cr6 grade steel

  • Ball and roller bearings
  • Bearing rings
  • Connecting rods
  • Big end bushes
  • Lathe centres
  • Collets
  • Cams
  • Pawls.
  • Small hardened steel cold work rolls
  • Blanking and forming tools
  • Punches
  • Knurling tools
  • Gauges
  • Fuel nozzles
  • Shear blades
  • Bullet cores
  • Instrument pivots
  • Spindles
