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.
826M40 grade steel is a 2.5% nickel-chromium-molybdenum through hardening steel which has a high hardenability.
It may be treated in relatively large section sizes to produce tensile strengths ranging from 850 to over 1550 N/mm² combined with good ductility and resistance to stock.
Due to its high molybdenum content, the steel may normally be tempered in the range 300-550C without serious loss of impact values.
Good mechanical properties at low temperature can also be obtained.
45mm - 405mm Dia
826M40 steel is still often referred to as EN26 steel - its equivalent grade under the previous BS 970: 1955 standard.
