Hot Working Tool Steels

Extensive Range - Expert Advice

Hot work tool steels have been developed for forming operations which are
done at high temperatures, including punching, forging and shearing.

The essential properties of Hot Work Tool Steels are:

1. Maintaining their mechanical properties at elevated temperatures
2. High wear resistance at elevated temperatures
3. High thermal conductivity

Such properties are achieved adding alloy elements such as chromium,
molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, nickel and cobalt in proper amounts.
Choosing suitable steel grade, machining and heat treatment increase
the performance of the mould.
