EN 1.5410 (G10MnMoV6-3) Cast Steel

EN 1.5410 steel is an alloy steel formulated for casting. 1.5410 is the EN numeric designation for this material. G10MnMoV6-3 is the EN chemical designation.

It has a very low base cost among cast alloy steels. In addition, it has a moderately low electrical conductivity and a fairly high thermal conductivity.

The properties of EN 1.5410 steel include three common variations. This page shows summary ranges across all of them. For more specific values, follow the links immediately below. The graph bars on the material properties cards further below compare EN 1.5410 steel to: cast alloy steels (top), all iron alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.

Alloy Composition

Among cast alloy steels, the composition of EN 1.5410 steel is notable for containing a comparatively high amount of manganese (Mn). Manganese is used to improve hardenability and surface quality.

Iron (Fe) 96.9 to 98.6
Manganese (Mn) 1.2 to 1.8
Molybdenum (Mo) 0.2 to 0.4
Silicon (Si) 0 to 0.6
Vanadium (V) 0.050 to 0.1
Carbon (C) 0 to 0.12
Phosphorus (P) 0 to 0.025
Sulfur (S) 0 to 0.020
