Vanadium alloy steels are still little known and debated when applied to the cold forming process, it is not clear what the performance of their mechanical performance is compared to traditional steels that the market already uses.

The possibility of reducing costs and generating competitiveness, are the basis for studies that generate new opportunities for industries. In this article, the possibility of withdrawing the heat treatment process, directed the performance of the tests presented here.

This paper deals with the performance comparison of DIN 30MnVS6 steel compared to ISO 898-1, which deals with mechanical performance for bolts. The tests were correlated with the bolts of resistance class 8.8, which currently have heat treatment. It is possible to evaluate the positive performance of the vanadium-alloyed steel DIN 30MnVS6, despite the occasional performance limitations in some attributes addressed in ISO 898-1.
