EN36 is a carburising steel grade with very high surface strength with a soft but strong core. The material retains a remarkable degree of toughness. With high tensile strength, EN36 Rod is used in the production of numerous high strength parts including crankshafts in the automotive and aerospace sector.
EN36 (655M13) is a nickel-chromium-molybdenum based case hardening engineering steel which is specifically designed for carburising. The addition of nickel increases shock resistance and toughness whilst the chromium increases the material’s hardenability giving it a uniformed hardness.
