What are Alloyed Steels?
All steel is alloyed because it is iron plus an added material. Yet, when we use the term alloyed steel in manufacturing this typically refers to iron material with additional alloys added to it such as chromium, nickel, silicon, manganese, vanadium, and boron. These are added to increase the strength, wear, and corrosion resistance of the steel. Setting it apart from carbon steel.
What are the Benefits of Alloyed Steels Machined Parts?
Alloyed steel was designed to provide greater strength and durability of the steel. What is amazing today is that there is a material that you can use that fits almost every application. 8620 alloyed steel for instance is great for welding.
- Lighter than carbon steel
- High tensile strength
- Stands up well to high temperatures
- Completely recyclable for highly sustainable machining
COMMON APPLICATIONS AND INDUSTRIES
