Product Announcement from Astralloy Steel Products, Inc.
The Astralloy V Bar employs the same chemistry as our lengendary Astralloy V plate. Used in industries from Mining to Machining the Astralloy V is know for its toughness, hardness and resistance to cracking, particularly in extreme conditions.
When compared to industry standard steel bars like the 4140 and 4340, the Astralloy V Bar outperforms these in most applications because it actually work hardens up to 550 Brinell. And in extreme temperatures and welding it will not lose its properties like most commodity grade steels do. In addition the Astralloy V exhibits much more torsional strength because of its homogeneous microstructure, allowing it to be cold and hot formable without the loss of properties.
