Quenched and tempered steels

Usage

Quenched and tempered steels are used for components subjected to high stresses where the combination of high strength, wear-resistance and toughness are particularly important. We supply high-grade steel as per EN 10083-2 as well as stainless steel according to EN 10083-1 and EN 10132-4, with also stand out for their high degree of purity. Typical applications are link plates, belt buckles, springs, steel caps for safety shoes, saw blades, knives and scissors. Boron-alloyed steel grades are available according to EN 10083-3 or rather the SZFG material sheets.

Quenching and tempering gives the materials their special properties. The user of these steel grades must make sure that his calculation, design and processing methods are appropriate for the material. Temperature control during quenching and tempering is essential to achieve the desired component properties, however, it must be matched to the respective application.

Steel grades C22 - 34CrMo4 are used both as hot strip and as input stock for cold rolling. Steel grades C67S, C75S and 51CrV4 are supplied as input stock for cold rolling. As the melting and hot-rolling conditions have an effect on further treatment at the customer, the customer should always state the intended use when placing an order.
