EN 47

EN 47 is a chrome-vanadium based steel, EN 47 can be oil hardened and tempered if required. This process gives the material a good level of abrasion resistance with excellent toughness, these characteristics make it a good choice for applications exposed to stress, shock, and vibration.

This material is commonly used in the automotive industry for high-intensity applications such as crankshafts, leaf springs etc. This combined with a relatively low cost when compared with other alloy steels, makes the material quite an attractive option.
