817M40T Steel (EN24T)
817M40T (EN24) is a chromium molybdenum engineering steel which is ideal for use in the production of high-strength components.
M40 denotes the tensile strength of the alloy, which is around 40 tonnes per square inch. The 'T' indicates that the material has undergone heat treatment to achieve the desired mechanical properties.
- High strength
- Excellent wear resistance
- Heat treatable
- Desired properties achieved by heat-treatment
817M40T suits engineering applications requiring high tensile and yield strength, high toughness, good ductility and excellent wear resistance. Further heat treatment achieves various hardness levels. While the steel promotes some corrosion resistance, it is not considered suitable for use in corrosive environments.
