EN24 is a popular grade of through-hardening alloy steel due to its excellent machinability in the "T" condition.
EN24T is used in components such as gears, shafts, studs and bolts. EN24T can be further surface-hardened to
create components with enhanced wear resistance by induction or nitriding processing.

Used in construction of aircrafts and heavy vehicle for crankshaft, gearshaft, camshaft, propellershaft etc
Carbon(C) Directly influences the hardness and strength of the steel, decreases toughness.
Chromiun(Cr) Improves Hardenability, high temperature strength, wear resisitance and even corrosion
Cobalt(Co) Improves retention of hardness at high temperatures.
Molybdenum(Mo) Increases yield point and strength. Improves Hardenability and wear resistance. Manganese
Lowers effects of Iron sulphides, increases hardenability, wear resistance.
Nickel(Ni) Increases toughness at lower temperatures, slows the corrosion process. Improves toughness,
grainstructure, high temperature strength, wear resistance, etc.
Vanadium(V) Increases wear resistance, high temperature strength, retention of hardness etc.
Silicon(Si) It is a deoxidizing agent. Increases strength and wear resistance. It is of importance that certain
elements are as low as possible. Elements like Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Sulphur create defects
inside & also reduce the mechanical properties of steels.

Hardening: Heat uniformly to 823/850C until heated through. Quench in oil.

Tempering: Heat uniformly and thoroughly at the selected tempering temperature, up to 660C and hold at heat for
two hours per inch oftotal thickness. Tempering between 250-375C in not recommended as this can seriously
reduce the steels impact value.

Stress Relieving:
Heat slowly to 650-670C, soak well before cooling the EN24 tool in a furnace or in air.
