708A42 Steel (EN19)
708A42 is a type of alloy steel that contains a high percentage of chromium and molybdenum.
Our material is the equivalent of EN19 steel due to its similar composition and qualities. Our product finds common use in manufacturing machine parts, such as gears, shafts, and axles, due to its high strength, toughness, and wear resistance.
- Easier to machine
- Increased strength
- Increased wear resistance
- Ideal for applications involving frictional wear
708A42 has a relatively low hardness, which makes it easier to machine and work with than harder steels. This grade of steel can be heat-treated to improve its mechanical properties, to achieve a hardness of around 30-36 HRC, which is suitable for most industrial applications.
