DIN 42CrMo4 1.7225,ASTM 4140 High Tensile Steel Bar


DIN 42CrMo4 1.7225 ASTM 4140 Hot Rolled High Tensile Steel Bar, generally supplied hardened and tempered to Condition “T” in sections up to 100mm, with a tensile strength of 850 – 1000 MPa and aiming for this strength range in larger sections. It offers a very good balance of strength, toughness and wearresistance.


Alloyed heat treatable steel with a typical tensile strength of 900 -1200 N/mm². For automotive and aircraft components with high toughness as axle journals, gears, tyres, push rods. And Axles, conveyor parts, crow bars, gears, logging parts, spindles, shafts, sprockets, studs, pinions, pump shafts, rams, ring gears, etc.

Quality Standard

ASTM A29 Standard for Steel Bars, Carbon and Alloy, Hot-Wrought, General Requirements.
