AISI 4140 Alloy Steel

AISI 4140 Alloy Steel is a common chromium-molybdenum steel that usually used after quenched and tempered, with high intensity, high hardenability. The alloy 4140 plate also has high fatigue strength and good low-temperature impact toughness.
Product introduction
AISI 4140 Alloy Steel (UNS G41400)

Alloy steels are designated by AISI four-digit numbers and comprise different kinds of steels, each with a composition which exceeds the limitations of B, C, Mn, Mo, Ni, Si, Cr, and Va set for carbon steels.

AISI 4140 alloy steel is a chromium-, molybdenum-, and manganese-containing low alloy steel. It has high fatigue strength, abrasion and impact resistance, toughness, and torsional strength. The following datasheet gives an overview of AISI 4140 alloy steel.

Fabrication and Heat Treatment


Machinability 

AISI 4140 alloy steel has good machinability in the annealed condition.

Forming

AISI 4140 alloy steel has high ductility. It can be formed using conventional techniques in the annealed condition. It requires more pressure or force for forming because it is tougher than plain carbon steels.

Welding

AISI 4140 alloy steel can be welded using all conventional techniques. However, the mechanical properties of this steel will be affected if it is welded in the heat-treated condition, and post-weld heat treatment should be performed.

Heat Treatment

AISI 4140 alloy steel is heated at 845°C (1550°F) followed by quenching in oil. Before hardening, it can be normalized by heating it at 913°C (1675°F) for a long period of time, followed by air cooling.

Forging

AISI 4140 alloy steel is forged at 926 to 1205°C (1700 to 2200°F)

Hot Working

AISI 4140 alloy steel can be hot worked at 816 to 1038°C (1500 to 1900°F)

Cold Working

AISI 4140 alloy steel can be cold worked using conventional methods in the annealed condition.

Annealing

AISI 4140 alloy steel is annealed at 872°C (1600°F) followed by slowly cooling in the furnace.

Tempering

AISI 4140 alloy steel can be tempered at 205 to 649°C (400 to 1200°F) depending upon the desired hardness level. The hardness of the steel can be increased if it has a lower tempering temperature. For example, a tensile strength of 225 ksi can be achieved by tempering at 316°C (600°F), and tensile strength of 130 ksi can be achieved by tempering at 538°C (1000°F).

Hardening

AISI 4140 alloy steel can be hardened by cold working, or heating and quenching.
