Niobium alloy steels are still little known and debated when applied to the metallurgy industry, including cold forming process. It is not much clear about its characteristics and your mechanical performance when compared to traditional steels, which the market already uses. The possibility of input new materials, reducing costs and generating competitiveness is the basis for researches that can generate new opportunities for industries. In this article, we showed the possibility of withdrawing

This paper deals with the performance comparison of SAE 1312 MOD steel compared to ISO 898-1, which deals with mechanical performance for bolts. The tests were correlated with the bolts of 8.8 resistance class, which currently have heat treatment. It is possible to evaluate the positive performance of the niobium-alloyed steel (SAE 1312 MOD), despite the occasional performance limitations in some attributes addressed in ISO 898-1.
