Steel hexagon is an unalloyed quality steel for machine elements with the material number 1.0503. This type of steel is also known as steel C45 and is intended for hardening and tempering. It gains in hardness and resilience. Furthermore, a higher tensile strength and a higher fatigue strength are achieved. Due to the high carbon content, hexagon steel C45 has limited suitability for welding and can therefore only be used partially for large welded structures.
You can buy 6 point steel in the Evek online shop. You can choose from various hexagonal steels at a good price.
Hexagonal steel has good wear resistance, machinability and dimensional stability as well as high toughness and relatively high strength. The steel is used for components that only have to withstand low loads. The machinability of the steel can be improved by adding lead (0.15 - 0.35 percent by mass).
Steel hexagon is used for low-load components. Its main areas of application are:
- Mechanical engineering;
- Vehicle construction;
- apparatus engineering;
- engine building.
Hexagon steel C45 is characterized by:
- easy to harden and temper;
- good machinability and dimensional stability;
- high toughness and high fatigue strength;
- only partially weldable;
- good wear resistance.
