WixSteel Industrial worked in alloy material business for many years, with support by China top steel factory engineer, could give your question best professional answer, so, if you have any questions about alloy materials, please feel free to ask us.

Do you wish to know the difference between 42CrMo4 and 42CrMo? The main difference is 42CrMo4 is EN standard, 42CrMo is China GB standard. P, V and S element is a little different each other, machinery property is similar. 42CrMo4 is from European standard-EN10083, 42CrMo4 is a kind of alloy steel with high hardenability, good toughness and small deformation during quenching. It has high creep strength and endurance strength at high temperature. 42CrMo is from China GB/T standard steel grade, it is a medium carbon alloy structural steel with good mechanical properties, good hardenability and wide application. In the machinery

Here we (WixSteel Industrial) will tell the detailed difference about 45CrNiMo1V, 45CrNiMo and 45 CrNiMoVa 45CrNiMo1V was created (in 1995) by China steel factory follow the USA steel grade D6AC(ASTM A29/A29M-4), China adjust some element a little to get similar performance. In 1995, China steel factory is not such good on process control, so engineer add more Mo into it, reduce the Ni percentage, to get the similar performance with D6AC. Here you can sheck the chemical composition of this 3 materials below: Because Mo is expensive, in 1999, steel factory update the process, they can control the final performance

The application of Nickel element in alloy materials Nickel is a silver-white metal with magnetic properties and good plasticity. Nickel has good corrosion resistance. Nickel is similar to silver white, hard and ductile metal elements with ferromagnetic properties. It can be highly polished and corrosion resistant. It is green when dissolved in nitric acid. Mainly used in alloys (such as nickel steel and nickel silver) and as catalysts (such as Laney nickel, especially as hydrogenation catalysts). The density of nickel is 8.902 g/cubic centimeter, the melting point is 1453°C, and the boiling point is 2732°C. Nickel is widely used in
