Prehardened steels – Mechanical applications

Industeel produces prehardened steel grades and available in a very large dimensional program (width ~ 78“ – 2 m thickness up to 37.4” – 950 mm).

Forged-rolled plates and blocks can be supplied for critical thick-product applications where specific properties are required throughout the thickness or for stringent ultrasonic testing specifications.

Those products can be used in substitution to conventional engineering tool steels, in the manufacture of massive steel components (machines, hydraulic systems…) and engineering tools.

Mecasteel and Superplast® grades, developed by Industeel, are a concept of patented pre-hardened grades with improved properties compared to standard AISI 4130 / 4140 / 4330 / 4330 modified.
