EN30B Alloy Steel
EN30B steel stockholders and suppliers. EN30B is a 4 1/4% nickel grade available as full bar lengths or cut pieces in flat and round bar with delivery to the whole of the UK. It is widely used for plastic moulds, but is also suitable for many other applications. The hardening treatment is relatively simple, quenching in air or oil from 810-830°C followed by tempering, with excellent mechanical properties being obtained. Owing to its strength this steel can be used for compression and transfer moulding as well as injection moulding and the relative freedom from distortion makes it superior to case hardening steels for complex mould applications. With limited availability of certain sizes in EN30B West Yorkshire Steel can also offer ‘high carbon’ EN30B to grade X45NiCrMo4. EN30B will machine readily in the annealed condition in which it is supplied.
