Alloy Steel Grades

Alloy steel grades are carefully selected to fit any customer-specified application since they do differ in featured properties and strength.

Alloy Steel GradesDifferent alloy steel products are made out of a variety of alloy steel grades. Many industrial manufacturers and engineers mainly use these metals since they do fit for a lot of uses in various major industries like aerospace, automotive, and other machinery.

Alloy steel grades are mostly tempered and quenched to achieve toughness and high strength.

Forte Precision Metals does provide a unique information about each alloy steel grades and their specification when it comes to their nature, capacity, and suited applications.

Please see the alloy steel grades table below.

GRADE DESCRIPTION APPLICATION
4120 has good tough strength properties used for forging applications as forged valve bodies and pumps
4125 a chromium-molybdenum alloy steel, displays good strength and toughness properties automotive and engineering gear, engine construction – steering knuckles, forged crankshafts, etc.
4130 readily machineable, weldable and ductile, has tough strength commercial and military aircraft, machine tools, automotive, hydraulic tools, aerospace, auto racing
4135 low-alloy steel, capable of being heat treated and has reasonable toughness forged shafts, fixtures, collars, jigs, spindles
