8620 Alloy Steel Bar Stock

The 8620 alloy steel is a steel with controlled proportions chromium, nickel, and molybdenum which are responsible for its valuable features allowing it to be extensively used in various applications.

8620 Alloy Steel Round Bar Stock

Its nickel content provides it with good ductility and toughness while its chromium and molybdenum components improve its wear resistance and hardness penetration.

Due to its good combination of components and its ability to be easily processed, an 8620 alloy steel bar stock is an ideal material for the production of medium strength machine parts.

HIGH EXTERNAL STRENGTH, GOOD INTERNAL STRENGTH

Characterized by a hard outer case with a soft ductile core, the 8620 alloy steel is highly wear resistant.

As such, it is characterized to be flexible during hardening treatments, has good machinability, and responds well to polishing.

Moreover, this type of alloy steel can be further surface hardened by nitriding but will not respond satisfactorily to induction hardening due to its low carbon content.
