8620 Carbon is high-end alloy steel.
Your blades become blunt and incapable of slicing through your steak like butter. 8620 Carbon is a high-end alloy steel that’s been proven to maintain its edge for longer, making it the only reliable choice for any chef who needs to cut through a thick cut of beef.
8620 Carbon is nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy steel with excellent carburizing properties. It is high-performance steel. It is believed that the high nickel concentration contributes to the case’s high strength and above-average core toughness. Carbides develop correctly with the assistance of chromium and molybdenum, resulting in good surface hardness and wear. It is the most widely used carburizing alloy available on the market.
When properly hardened and tempered, 8620 carbon steel can also be used as high tensile steel (uncarburized), which can be used for a variety of applications requiring high tensile strength and adequate toughness.
O’Hare Precision Metals can provide a wide range of company-supplied or customer-supplied components and materials. Just like how we can offer you the best 8620 Carbon bar stocks and 8620 Carbon round bar stocks in O’Hare!
When properly hardened and tempered, 8620 carbon steel can also be used as high tensile steel (uncarburized), which can be used for various applications requiring high tensile strength and adequate toughness.
Pins, pinions, brushing, sleeves, shafts, bearings arbors, and rachets are just some of any applications of 8620 Carbon.
