606M36T / EN16MT - ACTON BRIGHT STEEL TECHNICAL GUIDE
606M36T / EN16MT is a low alloy manganese molybdenum steel which is supplied as bright drawn and in the hardened and tempered “T” condition, resulting in good mechanical properties. 606M36T / EN16MT is a sulphurised alloy steel, resulting in excellent machining speeds and with ease of chipping, gives a much better surface finish and extended tool life. 606M36T / EN16MT also has excellent ductility and shock resistance characteristics and is suitable for the manufacture of crankshafts, conrods and shafts and components involving intricate machining. See properties below and our hardness comparison table under the Useful Information section on our website. We can also supply 605M36T / EN16T where machinability is not quite so critical on which we also have a technical guide.
