Alloy Steel 4330 MOD Distributor and Supplier
These alloy is one of a family of alloys that did not take off immediately, even when developed relatively early. Although Julius Baur, who was an American metallurgist, first patented chromium steels in 1865, they were not yet very popular. The Chrome Steel Co. attempted to produce some of this product out of Brooklyn, New York. It took chromium alloy having further development by Henri-Ami Brustlein, who was a French metallurgist, before its popularity increased in the subsequent years. As time passed, the popularity only grew. There would be more and more developments and inventions as well as societal shifts that increased the demand for various sophisticated and specifically designed metals such as this one. Eventually, the world would see many cars on the road and planes in the air amongst other changes. Unlike when the patent was first developed, today shows a time where these metals are in high demand - especially for the aerospace industry. Out of these highly demanded metals comes this particular alloy as well. Today, this alloy steel 4340 is available in different specifications, each having been created by a variety of industries that use such alloys commonly. For this alloy, specifications are typically codified under AMS 6411, AMS 6427, GM 1010, MIL-S-8699, and BMS 7-27, as well as others. The industry has not only expanded greatly to produce more of these great alloys for all the fields requiring them, but now we are also faced with regulating bodies that govern the particular features of each product to ensure the highest quality and standard of safety in what is being produced.
Chemistry of Alloy Steel 4330 MODThe chemistry of this alloy consists of Iron (Fe), Nickel (Ni), Manganese (Mn), Silicon (Si), Chromium (Cr Molybdenum (Mo), and Carbon (C). There are also specifications to percentage by weight of these elements such as Iron (95 to 98%), Nickel (1 to 2%), Manganese (less than 1%), Silicon (less than 1%). Chromium (less than 1%), Molybdenum (less than 1%). Carbon (less than 1%). 4330 has a density of 0.28 lb/in3) with a specific gravity of 7.8. It has a Brinell classified hardness of 285, a less than 15.0% elongation at break (in 50 mm), a shear modulus of 80 GPa (or 11600 ksi), and an elastic modulus of 190 to 210 GPa (or 27557 to 30458 ksi). This alloy also has a yield strength of less than 690 MPa (or less than 100000 psi) and an ultimate tensile strength of less than 860 MPa (or less than 125000 psi).
