Alloy Steel Forgings

Alloy steel is the standard term when referring to steels with other alloying elements such as nickel, chromium and molybdenum added in addition to the carbon and manganese. Alloy steels can be heat treated to improve the hardness, tensile strength, wear resistance and impact strength for the given application.

Compared to carbon steels, alloy steels can have improved properties including strength, hardness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, hot hardness, hardenability, and toughness.

Alloy steels are found in products used throughout daily life due to their being readily available.  Many automotive, agricultural, rail and fluid movement parts are produced from alloy steels.

Common Alloying Elements:

Nickel –  increases strength and toughness

Chromium –  improves oxidation resistance

Molybdenum –  improves corrosion resistance and high temperature strength

Vanadium –  controls grain size and also increases hardness and strength

Boron –  improves hardenability
