605M36T / EN16T - ACTON BRIGHT STEEL TECHNICAL GUIDE
605M36T / EN16T is a low alloy manganese molybdenum steel which is supplied in the bright drawn, turned and hot rolled condition and is hardened and tempered to “T” condition, resulting in good mechanical properties. 605M36T / EN16T is readily machineable, with excellent ductility and shock resistance, suitable for the manufacture of crankshafts, conrods and shafts. See properties below and our hardness comparison table under the Useful Information section on our website. Where higher machining speeds and a better surface finish is required, we can also supply a sulphurised semi freecutting 606M36T / EN16MT on which we also have a technical guide.
