EN 1.6771 (G30NiCrMo14) Cast Steel

EN 1.6771 steel is an alloy steel formulated for casting. 1.6771 is the EN numeric designation for this material. G30NiCrMo14 is the EN chemical designation.

It can have a very high tensile strength among cast alloy steels. In addition, it can have a very low ductility and has a fairly high base cost.

The properties of EN 1.6771 steel include two common variations. This page shows summary ranges across both of them. For more specific values, follow the links immediately below. The graph bars on the material properties cards further below compare EN 1.6771 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 1.6771 steel is notable for containing a comparatively high amount of nickel (Ni). Nickel is used to improve mechanical properties, and to make the alloy easier to heat treat.

Iron (Fe)Fe 92.2 to 95
Nickel (Ni)Ni 3.0 to 4.0
Chromium (Cr)Cr 0.8 to 1.2
Manganese (Mn)Mn 0.6 to 1.0
Molybdenum (Mo)Mo 0.3 to 0.6
Carbon (C)C 0.27 to 0.33
Silicon (Si)Si 0 to 0.6
Phosphorus (P)P 0 to 0.030
Sulfur (S)S 0 to 0.020
