Project Description

4120 steel is a low carbon alloy structural steel containing Cr-Mo  alloying elements as per American standard ASTM A29.

As a Cr-Ni series low alloy steel,4120 steel has high hardenability without temper brittleness.It performs well in machinability and cold strain plasticity.Due to the low carbon content, the weldability of 4120 steel is quite good, and the tendency to form cold cracks is small.

4120 steel is generally used in the condition of quenching and tempering or carburizing and quenching.It is often used in the manufacture of high-pressure pipes and various fasteners, higher-grade carburized parts, such as gears, shafts, etc.
