EN8 Rounds

EN8 is an unalloyed medium carbon steel which is used in applications where better properties than mild steel are required but where the costs do not justify the purchase of a steel alloy.

EN8 can be heat treated to provide a good surface hardness and moderate wear resistance by flame or induction hardening processes. From the automotive trade to wider general engineering applications, EN8 is a popular steel in industry.
