What is 4130 Chromoly Tubing?4130 steel chromoly tubing is a low alloy containing chromium, molybdenum, iron, carbon, and other alloying elements. Adding chromium to steel improves strength and corrosion resistance, and the molybdenum increases material toughness. 4130 steel chromoly tubing also provides a smooth interior and exterior finish that resists scaling and oxidation.
4130 Steel Chromoly Tubing AdvantagesRound 4130 Chromoly tube and pipe is manufactured to withstand a wide range of elements, providing numerous benefits for a range of applications. Some of the strengths of using 4130 Chromoly tubing include:
- Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
- High tensile strength, ductility, and toughness
- Lighter and more robust than carbon steel
- Easy to weld, form, and machine
- Ability to case harden using carburization
- Ability to harden using heat-treating or work hardening
4130 Chromoly Steel vs Stainless SteelChromoly steel is often used for its enhanced strength characteristics. Compared with stainless steel, chromoly tube offers higher strength and increased working temperatures while increasing corrosion resistance and oxidation. Due to its corrosive-resistant qualities, chromoly tubing is better suited than stainless steel for saltwater applications and is often used in the aviation, racing, and cycling industries.
