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 quenching and tempering. It gains more hardness and resilience. Furthermore, a higher tensile strength and a higher fatigue strength are achieved. Due to the high carbon content, hexagonal steel C45 is only suitable for welding to a limited extent and can therefore only partially be used for large welded structures.
You can buy 6 point steel in the Evek online shop. Various hexagonal steels are available to you at a good price.
Hexagonal steel shows 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 steel can be improved by adding lead (0.15-0.35 mass percent).
Steel hexagon is used for lightly stressed components. Its main areas of application are:
- Mechanical engineering;
- Vehicle construction;
- Apparatus construction;
- Engine construction.
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.
