Manganese steel, also known as Hadfield steel or mangalloy, is a type of alloy steel that contains a high amount of manganese, about 11 to 15%, and smaller amounts of carbon, ranging anywhere from 1 to 1.4%.
Manganese steel is renowned for its exceptional toughness, wear resistance, and work hardening abilities, making it suitable for applications involving heavy impact, abrasive wear, and shock.
High Manganese Steel (Manganal) is perhaps one of the most unique and exceptional types of specialized steel on the market. However, if you mention ‘Manganese’ to anyone outside of the world of metallurgy, you’ll likely be met with a blank stare.
To help you to understand just how exceptional our High Manganese steel (Manganal) is, we have assembled a list of the most common questions that customers tend to ask:
Of all the steel alloys out there, Manganese is perhaps one of the most unique—and interesting—options on the market. It’s non-magnetic despite its high iron-content, and it actually hardens under conditions whereas other alloys would shear or wear. In this article, we’ll give you a little insight into what Manganese Steel Alloy is, where it comes from, and why it’s so incredible. (more…)
