C300 maraging steel affords you the possibility of reducing waeight whilst maintaining strength
02
SHP

C300 maraging steel is age hardenable steel produced to create exceptional toughness and strength.

With a nominal tensile strength of 300 Ksi, the material can retain its tensile strength up to 450°C. The core alloying elements are iron, cobalt, nickel and molybdenum, and the product offers excellent toughness and resistance to crack propagation. The material may also be nitrided. C300 can be machined close to finished dimensions as the low-temperature maraging treatment results in minimal distortion.


Characteristics

The alloy offers the following benefits:

  • Excellent strength and toughness
  • Excellent resistance to crack propagation
  • Can be readily welded
  • Retains properties without loss of malleability

Applications

C300 is suitable for the following motorsport applications:

  • Torsion bars
  • Chassis components
  • Crankshafts
  • Gears
