Typical Uses
The manganese content provides greater strength and hardness compared to many other carbon steels. It is often used in its natural state for such applications as back-up plate, stripper plates, punch pads, and machine parts. As a case-hardened material, it is used for jigs, fixtures, cams, and patterns.
