16MnCr5 - 1% Chromium-Manganese Case 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

16MnCr5 grade steel is a case hardening steel used extensively for both carburising and carbonitriding, demonstrating reasonably high hardenability and excellent forgeability.

This grade also has excellent weldability, however care should be taken to avoid weld cracking.

Machinability is approximately 80% of that of mild steel.
