20MnCr5 is a case-hardening steel with low carbon content but good hardenability reaching good wear resistance due to high surface hardness after hardening. The small grain size benefits in good ductility and fatigue strength. Suitable for gearboxes and axle gears.
Ovako 236F is a standard variant with controlled sulphur content for consistent machining properties.
Ovako 236Q is an IQ (isotropic quality) variant.
IQ-Steel® is an isotropic quality ultra clean steel optimized for high fatigue strength under multi axial loading.
