a) the quantity to be delivered;
b) the designation of the product form (cold rolled narrow strip);
c) the number of the dimensional standard (EN 10140);
d) the dimensions and tolerances on dimensions and shape and, if applicable, letters
denoting relevant special tolerances;
e)the number of this European Standard including the number of the relevant part;
f) steel name or steel number
g) the delivery condition
h) if required, the type of inspection document in accordance with EN 10204.
51CrV4 1.8159 Quenched Tempered Strip Delivery condition
Cold rolled narrow steel strip covered by EN10132-4 shall be supplied in one of the following delivery conditions:
-annealed or annealed and skin passed(+A or +LC);
-quenched and tempered(+QT).
NOTE The delivery condition-annealed to achieve spheroidized carbides(+AC)-may be agreed. In such cases, limits on spheroidization and mechanical properties may also be agreed at the time of enquiry and order.
51CrV4 1.8159 Quenched Tempered Strip Surface finish
The surface finish of cold rolled narrow steel strip shall be bright as produced by rolling and annealing in a controlled atmosphere.
The surface finishes of quenched and tempered cold rolled strip are as follows:
1 grey/blue oxide finish:unpolished;
2 brigth tempered:unpolished
3 polished: obtained by fine grinding, abrasive brushing or other processes;
4 polished and coloured:blue or yellow colour obtained by oxidization by heat
Hardened and Tempered Steel Strip (also known as hardened and tempered High carbon steel strip or, hardened and tempered carbon spring steel strip) is the basic raw material from which many different components are made, substantially being spring-type applications ranging from clutch plate segments to washers, retractor springs and even to tree springs in riding saddles and traditional clock springs. These strip products are a specialty of the Company and considerable plant development has taken place in recent years to facilitate a very wide range of dimensions, mechanical properties and coil weights. Hardened and Tempered Steel Strip gauges of between 0.10mm and 2.00mm can be processed and, depending on the appropriate combination to suit the process equipment, strip widths of between 4.76mm to 240mm are produced. The facilities also allow up to 2000kg coils to be produced though most are well below this, being governed by a very approximate relationship of 100kg per 25mm of width.
The surface finish of Hardened and Tempered Steel Strip products is not too critical in general engineering applications where the normal blue-black (also known as blue-grey) oxidized finish from the heat treatment is satisfactory. By control of the atmospheres in the furnaces non-oxidised surfaces can also be produced, on a selected basis, and alternatively, steels can be satin or bright polished were needed, these finishes being as much for cosmetic reasons as for engineering purposes.
EN 1.8159 steel is an alloy steel formulated for primary forming into wrought products. 1.8159 is the EN numeric designation for this material. 51CrV4 is the EN chemical designation. It has a moderately low melting temperature and a fairly high embodied energy among EN wrought alloy steels.
The steel, unlike other carbon and alloy grades, is characterized by high hardness, low vulnerability to tempering, resistance for variable and heavy loads, and the ability to operate at elevated temperatures up to 300 ℃. Surface-hardened, retains excellent strength properties of the core while maintaining sufficient surface hardness.58CrV4 / 1.8161 and 59CrV4 / 1.2242 are related grades with the same range of alloying additives. It is distinguished by the higher carbon content, which makes it possible to achieve even higher hardness after heat treatment.51CrV4 / 50CrV4 / 58CrV4 / 59CrV4 grades are supplied as hot-rolled bars, drawn bars, wires, spring stripes, forgings are used for the production of heavy-duty springs, axles, crankshafts, connecting rods, compression springs, valve springs, springs, shock absorbers or spring washers.It is mainly supplied in an annealed, softened, heat-treated and raw conditions. Steel does not exhibit corrosion resistance, so products should be protected with greases or coatings.

High carbon steel is an ideal material for custom flat springs, custom clips, and custom sheet metal stampings. High Carbon Steel Strips combines ease of fabrication with good strength and surface finish, is valued for its strength properties and operates at significantly higher levels than the mild steel grades. High carbon steel strip can be finished to meet the needs of a wide range of products. Where tensile strength and hardness are required, High Carbon steels are the material of choice. High Carbon Steel Strips Grades : C60, C65, C70, C75, C85, HC-14, En 42 J, C-98, C-100, C-124, HC21 etc. We offer spring steel strip in various shapes and sizes according to your final uses. These have excellent hardens property and high yield strength. Clients can avail these at competitive prices.
