View Sample Alloy Digest Data Sheet (PDF)

Since 1952, Alloy Digest has been the leading reference for materials property data on metals and alloys used throughout the world. Featuring graphs, charts and tables, these sheets give facts and figures on composition or characterization, physical and mechanical properties, heat treatment, and machinability.

SAE 8642 is a triple-alloy steel that can be hardened by austenitizing and quenching in oil. This steel has moderate hardenability with relative high strength and toughness, especially in the quenched-and-tempered condition. It is used in a wide range of components, parts and tools; examples are bolts, shafts, gears, wrenches, axles and housings.
