• Gears subjected to high stresses, diverse parts subject to wear and fatigue in service.
• In the quenched and tempered condition: safety-critical parts.
• High mechanical properties.
• Good fatigue strength.
• After carburizing, quenching and tempering, the surface hardness is around 700 HV.
• For some carburizing applications, oil quenching can be replaced with gas pressure quenching in order to minimise distortion due to the heat treatment.
The mechanical properties thus obtained are equivalent to those of the FADH grade.
