Chemical composition of hard chrome plated shafts
As one of the leading chrome plated bar manufacturers and suppliers, We supply hard chrome plated shafts in medium carbon steel grades according to customers request, and the most popular steel grade is AISI 1045, JIS S45C, SAE1045, DIN CK45, SAE 4140, 42CrMo, and so on.
Here below is the chemical composition of steel grade SAE 1045 / CK45:
|Steel Grade||Chemical Composition %|
|SAE 1045||0.43-0.50||0.60-0.90||–||0.040 Max||0.050 Max|
|CK 45||0.42-0.50||0.50-0.80||0.40 Max||0.035 Max||0.035 Max|
And below is the chemical composition of 4140 chrome plated shafting.
Mechanical Properties of chrome plated shafting
|Steel Grade||Mechanical Properties|
|Yield Strength||Tensile Strength||Elongation||Hardness|
|SAE 1045||75000 psi / 517 Mpa||85000 psi / 585Mpa||10%||Rc 60-72|
|CK 45||75000 psi / 517 Mpa||85000 psi / 585Mpa||10%||Rc 60-72|
With special heat treatment, the yield strength of our chrome plated shafting can be min. 100K psi (690 Mpa).
For chrome plated shafts require high strength, we can supply 4140 hard chrome plated rod. Here below is the chemcial properties of SAE 4140.
|4140||Yield strength||Tensile Strength||Elongation||Hardness HB|
|Min||800 Mpa /115K psi||900 Mpa /130K psi||20%||270 HB|
