China 36NiCrMo16-Alloy steel


China 36NiCrMo16-Alloy steel is an alloy steel formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Cited properties are appropriate for the quenched and tempered condition. 1.6773 is the EN numeric designation for this material.36NiCrMo16 Alloy Steel is a quench and tempering special NiCrMo steel, characterized by very high tensile strength together with good toughness. It is usable in the hardened and stress relieved state. It can harden in the air up to thicknesses equal to 90 mm.

Reference standard

  • EN 10083-3: 2006 Steels for quenching and tempering. Technical delivery conditions for alloy steels
  • EN 10250-3: 2000 Open steel die forgings for general engineering purposes. Alloy special steels


China 36NiCrMo16-Alloy steel is often used to make parts that require high strength, torsion and impact resistance, such as machine drive shafts, crankshafts, gears, worms, connecting rods, bolts, nuts, fasteners, etc.
