Designation by Standards
Chemical Composition (in weight %)
This is one of the higher carbon steels used for high hardness in the fully hardened condition. In such condition the steel is more brittle than the lower carbon steels.
Applications include springs and cutting tools.
Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature
Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 210
Density [g/cm3]: 7.85
Heat to 925oC, cool slowly.
Harden from a temperature of 890oC followed by oil quenching.
Tempering temperature: Please ask
Hot forming temperature: 1100-850oC.
The machinability of this steel suffers because of the high carbon content. It rates at 50% that of the AISI 1112 steel that is considered the 100% machinable base reference.
This is a steel and will rust unless protected. It is not a corrosion resistant alloy.
C75 is weldable by all of the welding techniques. However it is important to use pre-heat and post-heat practice as given in approved weld procedure, in order to avoid cracking. Pre-heat at 260 to 320oC and post-heat at 650 to 780oC.
Cold working of C75 is difficult even in the annealed condition. However it may be done by conventional methods but requires more force than for the low carbon steels.
