Induction hardened Cromax IH 482 is based on a medium carbon, microalloyed steel, which is characterized by high strength in the as-rolled condition, i.e., without heat treatment. The alloy is used for the manufacture of piston rods, pistons, and eyes for hydraulic cylinders. This datasheet provides information on composition, hardness, and tensile properties as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on corrosion resistance and surface qualities as well as forming, machining, and joining. Filing Code: SA-742. Producer or source: Ovako Cromax AB.
