Mecasteel™ 90

Prehardened forged rolled steel

Mecasteel 90 is a steel grade delivered in prehardened condition (YS ≥ 90 KSI – 620 MPa) and available in a very large dimensional program (width ~ 78“ – 2 m, thickness up to 37.4” – 950 mm).

It can be used in substitution to conventional engineering steels, such as AISI 4130 for example in the manufacture of massive steel components (machines, hydraulic systems…).

Its original chemistry and heat treatment process enable to obtain, in delivery condition, very consistent mechanical properties throughout the whole blocks, even for the heaviest gage.

Consequently, and unlike 4130 type steels, this material doesn’t need any further hardening after machining, allowing substantial cost savings.

Although it is delivered in prehardened condition, Mecasteel 90 provides outstanding machinability. Its low carbon leads also to excellent weldability and toughness compared to conventional steels.
