Steel Bars, Forgings, and Tubing, Nitriding, 1.4Cr - 1.2Mo - 0.3V (0.29 - 0.36C) Aircraft-Quality for Bearing Applications
This specification covers a nitriding grade of aircraft-quality, low-alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, mechanical tubing, and forging stock. These products have been used typically for nitrided parts such as bearings, operating under heavy loads and high speeds at moderate temperatures, and subject to rigid inspection standards, and requiring highest surface hardness, high core toughness, and less distortion than parts made from steel requiring quenching to case harden, but usage is not limited to such applications.
AMS6496A results from a Five Year Review and update of this specification.
