Description

1.7227 (42CrMoS4) is a quenched and tempered steel that mainly used in automotive and vehicle construction. Because of its high strength is suitable for highly stressed components, such as steering knuckles, connecting rods, crankshafts, gear shafts, gears or pinions. Can also be used in mechanical engineering universally in the hardened and tempered and additionally surface-hardened condition.
