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.

Size Range

32mm - 240mm Dia

Typical applications of 945M38 grade steel

  • General engineered components
  • High tensile bolts
  • Crankshafts
  • Gears
