AISI 4150 steel is a high-strength alloy structural steel, which has a higher carbon content than AISI 4140 steel in the Cr-Mo series medium carbon alloy steel.
AISI 4150 steel has high strength and toughness, good hardenability, and no obvious temper brittleness, but has white spot sensitivity during hot working.After normalizing or quenching and tempering, the machinability is good, but the plasticity is low during cold deformation, and the corresponding welding performance is poor.
AISI 4150 steel is suitable for forgings with higher strength or larger section than AISI 4140 steel, such as manufacturing large and medium-sized plastic molds that require certain strength and toughness.

AISI 4150 STEEL FORGING
- Initial Forging Temperature：1200℃
- Final Forging Temperature：800℃
- Forging Ratio：above 4:1
- Post-Forging Treatment: AISI 4150 Steel should be cooled as slowly as possible in sand after forged.As a white point sensitive steel,the recommended practice is to do hydrogen elimination heat treatment immediately after forging.
AISI 4150 STEEL HEAT TREATMENT
- Normalizing: 850-880°C,cool in air
- Annealing: 800-840℃,cool in furnace

- AISI 4150 Steel Quenching & Tempering(Q&T)
For Cr-Mo alloy steel, the performance of its material is mainly achieved by quenching and tempering.For example, AISI 4140 steel,AISI 4130 steel,while AISI 4150 steel, which is far stronger than AISI 4140 steel,ometimes can replace Ni series alloy steel in the applications.
For AISI 4150 steel,the suitable quenching temperature is 820-860ºC with quench medium oil.
