BS s106 is the British aerospace equivalent of 722M24 / EN40B. It is a medium strength 3% Chrome-Moly nitriding steel that develops high hardness after heat treatment, and is used in both aerospace applications and motorsports industries. It is generally supplied as bright bar in the hardened, tempered and stress relieved condition, designated S106D. It can also be supplied to the Rolls Royce specification MSRR 6001.
