230M07 - Low Carbon-Manganese Free Cutting 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

230M07 grade steel is a non-alloyed free cutting steel suitable for applications where good machinability is the prime consideration. It is typically used for the rapid production of parts which will not be subject to high stresses in service.

Case hardening can be carried out, but this steel is not recommended for general case hardening work and it is not intended for use where the hardened case is subject to severe impact in service.

This material should not be used for hollow parts which may be subject to internal pressure as the material does not possess good transverse properties.

Typical applications of 230M07 grade steel

  • Light duty studs
  • Cycle components
  • Intricate non-critical components.

230M07 steel is still often referred to as EN1A steel - its equivalent grade under the previous BS 970: 1955 standard.
