Alloy D6AC Vac Melt N&T (LESCALLOY D6AC VAC ARC ®) is a medium carbon, low alloy steel. Alloy D6AC has ultra high strength and is designed for use in high strength structural applications (strength levels up to 280,000 psi). Alloy D6AC also is know for its high yield strength to tensile strength ratio, combined with good ductility. Due to alloy D6AC deep hardening characteristics it makes it applicable for fairly large sections.

Alloy D6AC Vac Melt N&T (LESCALLOY D6AC VAC ARC ®) is available in bar (round bar).  For all stock availability contact Sales.
