It is a steel characterized by high wear resistance, excellent hardenability and dimensional stability during the heat treatment.

If treated at high temperature, the phenomena of secondary hardness occurs at subsequent tempering.

This characteristic makes this steel suitable for nitriding and/or P.V.D. type surface hardening treatments.

Main applications:

  • shear blades
  • blanking punches
  • die chasers
  • rolls for cold mills
  • threading rolls and chasers
