AISI 5140 Steel Round Bar Plate Sheet, DIN 1.7035, JIS SCr440

Alloy steels comprise a wide range of steels whose compositions are more than the limitations of C, Mo, Cr, Va, Mn, Ni, Si, and B which have been fixed for carbon steels. These steels are more responsive to mechanical and heat treatments than carbon steels.

The following datasheet will provide details about AISI 5140 alloy steel.


AISI 5140 steel also can be called JIS Scr440 and DIN 1.7035 steel. It is one of the alloy steel as well as the most popular steel grades in the productions of the machine. The 5140 steel round bar price is on the medium level and it was easy to processing. After tempering and quenching, the toughness, plasticity and wearing resistance of it will get better. Steel normalizing can make the spheroidizing for the organization of steel get easier. And it will raise the machinability of the semi-finished product with the hardness less than 160HBS. Tempering it at the temperature of 550℃-570℃ which can make it get better mechanical property. And the hardenability of it is higher than S45C steel. You can check 5140 Steel chemical composition and mechanical properties as below.
