As a carburising steel grade it is suitable for roller and ball bearings of extra light section, aeroplane and motor crankshafts requiring hard surfaces for roller paths, connecting rods with case-hardened ends, as well as highly stressed gudgeon pins, gears and certain types of collets.
|Carburising / Case Hardening|
Case hardening will give a hard wear resisting surface and a tough core strength EN36. Surfaces must be free from dirt and grease, and of low sulphur content. Case hardening can be carried out in salt baths with selected content depending on the type of salt and the depth of penetration required. Other considerations during the heat treatment process include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities. Time, temperatures and salt selection will be advised by your heat treatment provider.
|Typical Mechanical Properties*|
(*blank case hardened - 19mm test piece)
If it is necessary to soften the EN36 for machining between the carburising and subsequent heat treatment stages, heat to 640-650°C. Soak at this temperature for 1 to 2 hours and cool slowly in the furnace or in air.
Heat treatment temperatures, including rate of heating, cooling and soaking times will vary due to factors such as the shape and size of each EN36 steel component. Other considerations during the heat treatment process include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities. Please consult your heat treatment provider for full guidance on heat treatment of EN36 case hardening steel.
