What is EN8D material?

EN8D grade steel is a medium carbon steel offering moderate tensile strengths. The material is capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering on limited sections, but is more commonly supplied in the untreated or normalized condition.

EN8D is carbon steel with enhanced wear resistance. It is known to be surface-hardened version of EN8 by induction processes. It is used in automobile components and other general engineer components. The naming is as per British standards.

The difference between EN8D & EN8:

EN8 is through-hardened medium carbon steel. It used to manufacture parts such as axles, shafts, gears, studs, bolts etc, and can be easily machinable. EN8D has enhanced wear resistance and it’s a carbon steel. It is a surface-hardened version of EN8 by induction processes.

What is the hardness of EN8D?

Mechanical Properties:

Grade Tensile strength (Mpa) Hardness
EN8D ≥380    ≤111HB
What is En8D Carbon Steel Round Bar ?

Carbon steel is available as bright drawn key steel in flat and square sections. With medium tensile strength key steel is used widely in general engineering for components such as plain, gibhead, taper and parallel keys. Key steel is produced to the required tolerances as specified in British Standard BS46 and BS4235.Carbon spring steel specifications EN42, CS70, CS80, CS95 and CS100 are available as hardened and tempered spring steel strip, annealed spring steel strip, spring steel plate and spring steel sheet. EN43 spring steel is available in bar and plate. The grades commonly conform to BS970, BS1449, BS EN10083-1, BS EN10083-2, BS EN 10277 and BS EN 10278 standards.X120Mn12 1.3401 is a manganese steel with 1% carbon steel and an 11% to 14% manganese content supplied in plate. Offering excellent work hardening properties high manganese steel can be supplied in full plates or cut to your requirements.
