Description

722M24 grade steel is a chromium-molybdenum nitriding steel often supplied in the hardened and tempered condition (typically with 1075 N/mm² tensile strength).

After nitriding it develops a hard wear resistant case in the range of 61-65HRc with good resistance to shock and fatigue.

The relatively low temperature of the nitriding process produces components with a scale free surface and minimum distortion. No significant loss of surface hardness will result from operating temperature up to 500°C.

Typical applications of 722M24 grade steel

  • Aircraft applications 
  • Crankshafts
  • Gears
  • Plastic moulds
  • Compressor discs
  • Pins
  • Spindles 
  • Bolts

722M24 steel is still often referred to as EN40B steel - its equivalent grade under the previous BS 970: 1955 standard.
