General Information

19MnV6* is a micro alloyed steel with high tensile strength, good machinability and weldability.  

  • Suitable for case carburizing or nitriding
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Fine-grain treated
  • Delivered in as-rolled, normalized or quenched and tempered condition
  • Weldable if preheated

Ovako 280T is our premium variant.

Ovako 280X is used in the Ovako hollow bar program according to EN10294-1.

Ovako 281P is an additional variant of 281, which possess slightly different mechanical properties. 

Ovako 281T is a micro alloyed steel that is suitable for quench and tempering and possess a high tensile strength.
