Sheffield 14% Manganese is a true Hadfield Austenitic Manganese steel for resistance to severe impact and abrasive wear. This product will work harden in service up to 550 BHN. Because this product hardens under cold work conditions care should be taken when forming, drilling or machining is being considered.
Sheffield 14% Manganese can be welded with standard manganese electrodes. Please use only certified personnel who are familiar with working with this type of material. Drilling is not recommended for this product. Manganese is grey-white metal with a pinkish tinge and a very brittle but hard metallic element. Manganese is a reactive element that easily combines with water and air. It is a steel with a relatively large component about 10-14% of manganese; highly resistant to wear and shock. The original austenitic manganese steel, containing about 1.2%C and 12% Mn.Manganese Advantages
Work Hardening refers to the fact that the steel becomes harder and harder the more it is impacted or compressed.
The "Hadfield" grade has an original hardness of approximately 220 BRINELL. With the continued impact and /or compression it will surface harden to over 550 BRINELL.
It should be noted that only the outer skin surface hardens. The underlayer remains highly ductile and tough. As the surface wears, it continually renews itself becoming harder and harder.
Manganese steel is an austenitic steel which means it is non-magnetic. This property makes it useful in many applications such as bottom plates for lifting magnets - separator drum shells for magnetic materials - wear shoes on electric brakes etc.Advantages
