Introduction

Alloy steels with low carbon content in the range of 0.1-0.3% have greater weldability and formability while maintaining the strength. In these steels, the alloying elements can either form compounds or carbides instead of simply being mixed with the iron and carbon.

AISI 6150H alloy steel is a chromium-vanadium steel that can be hardened to a medium level of hardness.

The following datasheet will discuss in detail about the AISI 6150H alloy steel.
