Chemical Composition (in weight %)
TORKA is a heat treatable, low alloy steel containing nickel, chromium and molybdenum. It is known for its toughness and capability of developing high strength in the heat treated condition while retaining good fatigue strength.
Permanently stressed machine, engine and vehicle parts when high strength and toughness are required. Typical applications are for structural use, such as aircraft landing gear, power transmission gears and shafts and other structural parts.
Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature
Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 210
Density [g/cm3]: 7.85
A full anneal may be done at 840oC followed by controlled (furnace) cooling at a rate not faster than 10oC per hour down to 300oC. From 300oC it may be air cooled.
Harden from a temperature of 830oC followed by oil quenching.
The temperature for tempering depends upon the strength level desired. Before tempering the alloy should be in the heat treated or normalized & heat treated condition. For strength levels in the 260 – 280 ksi range temper at 230oC.
Hot forming temperature: 1100-850oC.
Machining is best done with this alloy in the annealed or normalized and tempered condition. It can be machined by all conventional methods..
This is a low alloy steel and not a corrosion resistant alloy. Protective coating should be used.
The alloy can be fusion or resistance welded. Preheat and post heat weld procedures should be followed when welding this alloy by established methods.
The TORKA alloy may be cold worked, in the annealed condition, by conventional methods and tooling. It has good ductility.
