Normalized Alloy Steel Round Bars

Due to FLEXOR®'S unique chemistry and high amount of carbide forming alloy FLEXOR® attains excellent tensile and yield strength while in the normalized condition. Typically this hardness range is 28-32 HRC. Some customers use FLEXOR® in this condition even after machining as it provides a homogeneous hardness from surface to core.  

It is important to note that FLEXOR® does not need to be annealed prior to quench and tempering when higher mechanical properties are preferred. The normalized microstructure is already easy to machine with either high speed or carbide cutting tools and will be stable throughout any additional processing.
