HR Plates

EN32A is a high quality low carbon steel .After forming, carburizing or nitriding process and quenching or other heat treatment, a structural part with wear-resistant surface and tough core can be achieved.

EN32 is a carbon case hardening steel. Components when carburized have a core strength range of 430-490 N/mm2 , with a hard wearing surface. It is a popular case hardening steel grade for general engineering, readily machineable and weldeable in its supply condition.

Offering you a complete choice of products which include Case Hardening Steel such as Case Hardening Steel En 32a, Case Hardening Steel En 32b, Case Hardening Steel EN36c, Case Hardening Steel EN 353, Case Hardening Sae /aisi 8620, Case Hardening Steel C10 and many more items.
