It ia a steel suitable for air hardening. It is characterized by fairly good dimensional stability during heat treatment.
It maintains high wear resistance up to temperatures of around 600 °C.
This steel also possesses excellent toughness and high level insensitivity to thermal shock and thermal fatigue.
A nitriding type surface treatment can be carried out on this steel to increase the service life of the tooling.
- dies for the pressure casting of light alloys;
- tooling for the extrusion of light alloys and steels;
- hot work shear blades;
- rolls for profiling tools (welding area).
