1. CARON STEEL HOLLOW BAR

a) Grade 20 MnV 6
20 MnV6 is an advanced form of the old ST 52 range that has a minimum of 0.06% Vanadium added, in order to increase both the Yield strength and the Tensile strength.  This means increased mechanical properties without changing the chemical analysis, except for the addition of the Vanadium.

Due to price pressure Reosteel no longer carries a complete range of this grade. Reosteel is however able to obtain this grade from several suppliers with relative ease.

Note that Mecaval 147M, MW450 and Ti6V are all included in the grade 20MnV6

PRODUCTION RANGE:  32 mm OD TO 610 mm OD

Both bigger sizes and alternative sizes are available on request.

For any further technical information on MnV6 please contact Reosteel
