945M38 - 0.7% Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum Through Hardening Steel

Surcharge

The Scrap surcharge has reduced for February 2019 as a consequence of lower production volumes at the end of 2018 and a realignment with other European scrap surcharges.

Surcharge information as listed via Liberty Speciality Steels where possible, other based on mean chemical analysis for the given grade.

Description

945M38 grade steel is a low alloy steel capable of being quenched and tempered to produce tensile strengths upon 925N/mm² in small sections and 850N/mm² in medium sections, combined with good ductility and resistance to stock.

In the hardened and tempered condition, machinability is comparable to that of other low alloyed steels; approximately 45-55% that of mild steel.

Typical quench and temper regime: Austenitise at 840-870⁰C followed by Oil Quench. Temper between 550-680⁰C.

Material will exhibit hardness of 55-60HRc in the as quenched condition.

Typical applications of 945M38 grade steel

  • General engineered components
  • High tensile bolts
  • Crankshafts
  • Gears
  • Boring bars
  • Shafts
  • Cutting tool bodies
