  1. Manganese Steel, also referred to as high manganese steel or manganal, is a specialized, work-hardening steel that’s nonmagnetic. It’s made up of approximately 11-14% manganese and 1-1.20% carbon. Unlike other forms of steel, the more wear and impact this steel receives, the harder it becomes, meaning it thrives in extreme wear environments and applications. Manganese steel has an original hardness of approximately 220 Brinell, but can work harden up to as much as 550 Brinell. In addition to being one of the most widely used steels nowadays, you might also be interested to learn it was first discovered as far back as 1892 in Sheffield, England.
