605M36 - Low Alloy Manganese-Molybdenum 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.


605M36 grade steel is a manganese-molybdenum through hardening steel used for parts requiring a tensile strength around 770 N/mm² in medium sections but capable of achieving up to 930 N/mm² in smaller sections.

This material has good resistance to shock and excellent ductility. Freedom from temper embrittlement is attainable with this grade.

Size Range

32mm - 240mm Dia

Typical applications of 605M36 grade steel

  • Crankshafts
  • Low endurance connecting rods
  • High tensile bolts and nuts
  • Hub spindles
  • Welded structures
  • Lifting gear
  • Spindles

605M36 steel is still often referred to as EN16 steel - its equivalent grade under the previous BS 970: 1955 standard.
