EN353 steel has a carbon content of 0.17% and therefore, it is perfect for numerous applications, including camshafts, duty gear, shaft, pinion, and gudgeon pins, as well as machining components. The steel is never outwardly brittle or ductile thanks to its lower hardness level and lower carbon content. Since carbon content material gets tougher and harder when it’s raised, this is what happens to EN353 steel, so if you are looking for a type of steel that offers the hardness and durability you need, this is it. 

Typical Analysis Numbers

The typical analysis numbers for this type of alloy steel include:

C
Cr
Mn
Mo
Ni
Si
0.10-0.20%
0.75-1.25%
0.50-1.00%
0.15-0.80%
1.00-1.50%
0.35%

This is definitely a strong type of steel that consists of nickel, chromium, and molybdenum, which makes it high-tensile strength and which has great wear resistance and good ductility. Moreover, in low temperatures, the steel offers you relatively good impact properties at low temperatures as well.

A Very Versatile Steel

A good alloy steel manufacturer offers EN353 in a variety of options, including various shapes.

0.50-1.00%
0.08-0.15%
1.00-1.50%
0.35%

The EN353 round bars, for example, have a lot of strength both internally and externally, and when you combine that with the fact that they are suitable for numerous applications involving elevated temperatures and the fact that it is highly wear-resistant, you’ll understand why this is such a popular type of steel and why there are so many applications for it.
