New: 1.6523 | 1.6526

From now on you will find the low-alloyed nickel, chromium, molybdenum steel 1.6523 and 1.6526 as forged bar steel in our stock. This steel is characterized by its high wear resistance.

These materials are ideal for all components that require a good combination of wear resistance and toughness.

Surface hardening can also be done by nitriding in these steel grades, if they are pre-hardened and tempered.

The mechanical properties of the two materials 1.6523 and 1.6526 are identical, they differ only in the more precisely defined sulfur content, which facilitates the machining.

In English-speaking countries, these two materials are known under AISI 8620, which is also attested.

We look forward to receiving your inquiries!
