8620 Case Hardening Steel

8620 steel stockholders and suppliers. 8620 grade is a low alloy nickel, chromium, molybdenum case hardening steel available as full bar lengths or cut pieces with delivery to the whole of the UK. Carburised 8620 gives a hard case with a strong core whilst retaining a remarkable degree of toughness. SAE 8620 is suited for applications which require a combination of toughness and wear resistance. This grade is commonly supplied in round bar also conforming to the AISI 8620 standard.

Case hardening will give a hard wear resisting surface and a tough core strength to the steel. Case hardening temperatures range from 880-930°C, followed by rapid quenching and tempering which will determine the resulting hardness.

Heat treatment temperatures, including rate of heating, cooling and soaking times will vary due to factors such as the shape and size of each steel component. Other considerations during the heat treatment process include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities. Please consult your heat treatment provider for full guidance on heat treatment of 8620 steel.

8620 case hardeing steel is available with BS EN 10204 3.1 mill certificate, please request when placing any orders.
