EN16 (605M36T) Engineering steel
EN16 (605M36T) is a high tensile steel through hardening which has excellent ductility and good shock resistance, ideal for manufacturing pistons and high tensile nuts & bolts, as well as high load couplings.
EN16 (605M36T) shares the same good mechanical properties of EN8 but is more resistant to shear loading (stress created when two planes of the same object are trying to slide past one another) and frictional wearing. It is an alternative alloy steel grade to other chromium and nickel high tensile steel specifications and is readily machinable in the supplied condition.
High Peak Steels stock EN16 because it is an excellent ‘all-rounder’ and is used in a wide variety of general engineering applications.
