15CrNi6, 1.5919, 17CrNi6-6, 1.5918 - specification and application

Steel used mainly in the engineering industry for medium sized, heavily loaded components requiring high surface hardness. The chemical composition is similar to the 17HNM, 18CrNiMo7-6, 1.6587 grades. It is distinguished by a slightly lower carbon content and the absence of Molybdenum. Products made of 15HN steel and its substitutes are used in the production of gears, pivots, transmissions or shafts of machines, cars and engines requiring high ductility, abrasion resistance, variable loads and impact resistance during continuous operation.
