AMS 6349 (4140)
Chromium-Molybdenum Alloy Steel Bar
This chromium-molybdenum alloy is a deep hardening steel used where strength and impact toughness are required.
It has high fatigue strength making it suitable for critical stressed applications at normal as well as elevated temperatures. For increased resistance to wear and abrasion, it may be nitrided. This grade is a quality product melted under the best of steelmaking practices for aircraft quality steels. It is vacuum degassed to meet the magnetic particle inspection standards of AMS 2301. The alloy is supplied in the normalised and cold finished, hot finished and normalised or normalised and cold finished condition.
The density of this material is typically 7.85kg/dm³.
