Could any one please tell me AISI 4115 material properties and applications

RE: Material specifications

The properties will depend on the heat treatment. A typical application would be a gear that is case carburized.

RE: Material specifications

The 41xx series is a low alloy steel with a small amount of chromium and molybdenum added for increased depth of strength/hardness. The last two numbers (15) represent nominal carbon content of 0.15%. Strength/hardness and ductility, as well as most other mechanical properties will vary with thermomechanical history (heat treatment, hot/cold working). Take a look at ASTM A500, the strength of this alloy will be similar to a 1015 carbon steel only greater thickness capability.

RE: Material specifications

My mistake, it's ASTM A400.
