38MnB5 - Micro Alloy Manganese-Boron Through Hardening Steel

Surcharge Information

Due to the UK’s mostly commonly recognised surcharge mechanism no longer being openly published to the UK market we are unable to provide specific surcharge information on our website at this stage.

We are currently working with our suppliers to establish alternative mechanisms in order to provide a comprehensive and transparent view of global surcharge variations.

Look out for our improved surcharge pages appearing in the coming weeks.

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
