Overview
Properties
Applications

H13 TOOL STEEL SUPPLIERS

H13 is tough, versatile and the most used tool steel for hot work applications. This grade can also be used in cold work applications.

 

Supplied Condition:

We supply H13 in the soft annealed condition to max. 229 HB.

Rounds can be bandsaw cut to your requirements.

Also available in wide plates & flats.

Also available in the EFS/ESR condition where better properties are required

 

H13 Tool Steel Chemical Composition (%):
C Cr Mo V
0,40 5,30 1,40 1,00
  • H13 Tool Steel Properties

  • Chromium-molybdenum, air-hardening steel
  • High strength at elevated temperatures
  • High hot wear resistance but limited water-cooling possibilities
  • Good toughness, thermal conductivity and resistance to heat cracking
  • Can also be used in cold work applications
  • Excellent “polishability”

Applications of H13 Tool Steel:

H13 steel is particularly suitable for hot forming tools, where resistance to heat checking is key:

  • Extrusion tools
  • Forging dies
  • Pressure casting tools
  • Hot shear knives
  • Tools for the plastic industry
  • Hot chisels
  • Pressure pads
  • Backer blocks
  • Extrusion stems and rams
  • Blanking and bending tools
  • Hot heading tools
