About Chrome Moly

Chrome Moly is one of our most popular heat resistant steels and is commonly found throughout the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. The combination of chromium (giving the steel excellent corrosion resistance) and Molybdenum (for greater tensile strength and heat resistance), makes this steel an ideal choice for high temperature working environments.
