Application

Steel grade 16MnCr5 is used for surface hardening when grouting, nitrocarburising, nitriding and for other types of surface chemical-thermal treatment. It is used to make shafts, axles, gears, gear wheels, bolts, levers and other transport and machine-building components.

 

Welding

While this steel grade has satisfactory weldability, there is a possibility of cracks forming along welds.
