Engineering Steel is a steel that has had small amounts of one or more alloying elements (other than carbon) such as such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium and aluminum added. This produces specific properties that are not found in regular carbon steel.
Engineering Steels are workhorses of industry because of their economical cost, wide availability, ease of processing, and good mechanical properties. Alloy steels are generally more responsive to heat and mechanical treatments than carbon steels.
Engineering Steel Round Bar EN36 is a round shaped EN36 Engineering Steel Alloy bar.
EN36 Engineering Steel Alloy is a 3.2% nickel-chromium high hardenability, case hardening (carburising) steel, generally supplied in the annealed condition with a maximum Brinell hardness of 255 (Rc26).
Characterised by high core strength, excellent toughness and fatigue resistance in relatively large sections with case hardness up to Rc62 when carburised, hardened and tempered.
EN36A can also be used (uncarburised) as a high tensile steel, which when suitably hardened and tempered can be utilized for various applications requiring good tensile strength and excellent toughness.
