C250 maraging steel offers an attractive combination of strength & toughness
01
SHP

We supply Type C250 maraging steel in the annealed condition where the microstructure consists of fine martensite. Final properties are achieved as a result of the precipitation-hardening process to produce a very high strength steel product with a nominal tensile strength of 250 Ksi.

The alloy also benefits from good notch impact toughness to temperatures below 50°C. The material can be readily-welded, and the product can also be machined close to finished dimensions.


Characteristics

The alloy offers the following benefits:

  • Good notch impact toughness
  • Very high tensile strength (250 Ksi)
  • Can be readily welded
  • The material can be nitrided

Applications

C250 is suitable for the following motorsport applications:

  • Crankshafts
  • Gears
  • Chassis components
  • Torsion bars
