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.
C45 grade steel is a medium carbon steel offering moderate tensile strengths.
The material is capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering on limited sections but can also be flame or induction hardened to Hrc 55.
This grade is most commonly supplied in an untreated or normalised condition and is available in several variations (denoted by additional letters) which offer slight modifications of chemical composition.
Machinability similar to that of mild steel can be expected, however weldability is reduced.
