FLEXOR® Superior Steel Alternative to

6150 Alloy Steel

Pennsylvania Steel Corporation offers an alternative to SAE 6150 alloy steel.

FLEXOR® steel exhibits similar, if not superior, chemical and mechanical properties as those of 6150 alloy steel. These properties allow FLEXOR® steel to be used effectively for the demanding, high-stress applications that commonly utilize 6150 alloy steel, including Shafts, Gears, Pinions, Hand Tool Components, Tool Holders, Collets, Washers and other high wear Machine Parts.

Being a proprietary grade, Pennsylvania Steel ensures that all FLEXOR® heats meet a high quality vacuum degas electric arc furnace melt process in order to ensure cleanliness, grain refinement and maximum reduction ratios.

FLEXOR® Properties

FLEXOR®'s consistent quality and adaptability in heat treatment allow for a wide range of physical properties that are more appealing than those of typical ASTM, AISI or SAE 6150 alloy steel.

FLEXOR® has a higher core hardness, resulting in less distortion through heat treatment, minimal work hardening during machining and greater ultimate strength for high-stress applications. The use of Chromium, Molybdenum and Tungsten Carbides in FLEXOR®'s composition adds significant wear resistance to the steel, substantially increasing its life over 6150 alloys with similar Rockwell surface hardness. FLEXOR® can be Flame Hardened or Induction Hardened with excellent results.

FLEXOR® Sizes & Conditions

FLEXOR® steel is available in a variety of sizes and conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Decarb free alloys
  • Hot rolled flats
  • Hot rolled rounds
  • Hot rolled plates
  • Peeled steel bars
  • Turned forged rounds and billet
  • Ground and polished rounds
