38MnB5 - Micro Alloy Manganese-Boron 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

38MnB5 grade steel is a micro alloy steel with added boron for enhanced hardenability.

The material is capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering to produce tensile strengths of 1025 N/mm2 (on limited sections) and achieves good wear resistance along with excellent mechanical loading performance.

The material will exhibit hardness of 50-55HRc in the as quenched condition.

Typical applications of 38MnB5 grade steel

  • Agricultural machinery including:
    • Discs
    • Plough shares
  • Cutting equipment
  • Machinery for public works
  • Mining
