EN24 steel is a medium carbon, low alloy steel known for its toughness and strength in generally large sections. EN24 steel is likewise one kind of nickel chromium molybdenum steels. It can  be supplied hardened and tempered in the tensile range of 930-1080 Mpa as well as annealed condition. Pre hardened and tempered EN24 steel can be further surface hardened by flame or induction hardening and by nitriding. The EN24 steel has great shock and impact resistance as well as wear and abrasion resistance in the hardened condition.

EN24 steel is high tensile alloy steel famous for its excellent wear resistance properties and in addition to where high strength properties are required. This Grade is used in components affiliated to shafts, gears, studs and bolts. Its hardness is within the range of 248~302 HB. It might be further surface-hardened to make additional with more advantageous wear resistance by means of induction or nitriding processing.


  • Standard high-speed steel grade
  • Contains well-balanced alloy composition
  • High toughness
  • Great cutting edge retention


Basically utilized in all metal-cutting tools for roughing or finishing such as twist drills, thread dies, diverse milling cutters, reamers, broaches, circular saw segments, countersinks, thread chasers, shaping tools and woodworking tools. Also highly suitable for cold-forming tools such as cold extrusion rams and dies, as well as cutting and precision cutting tools, plastic moulds with elevated wear resistance and screws.
