Steels containing other metals such as iron, chromium, nickel, manganese,
tungsten, or vanadium are called alloy steels. The characteristics of alloy steel
depends on the elements added to the steel. This steel finds application in jet
engines, nuclear reactors, electric motors and transformers.
15CDV6 Alloy Steel
The 15CDV6 alloy steel is a low carbon steel with excellent yield
strength. It features very good toughness and weldability. Welding can be
carried out without the need for subsequent heat treatment and there is only
negligible loss of properties during welding. 15CDV6 alloy steel has a density of
