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.
