Versatility of boron steel

Published:  04 November, 2014

OVAKO says its extensive expertise in developing low alloy boron steel means it now has a wide range of material grades within its melt programme. All of these, when heat treated, can achieve properties comparable with those of higher alloy steels.

In order to produce these grades only small additions of boron are required which, in combination with carbon and other alloying elements, increase the hardenability of the steel.

The material can be used in a comprehensive range of applications, such as agricultural machinery, automotive components, wind turbines, bearings, fixing bolts, lifting hooks, crusher hammers, concrete manufacture, transport chains, wood and paper production, cane sugar manufacture etc.
