Tool steel is a branch of metals that are made into tools. The tool steel grades we currently have available are D1, H13 and 01.
D2 is a high carbon, high chromium, molybdenum, vanadium air hardening tool steel that offers increased resistance against abrasive wear due to a high volume of hard carbides in the steel.
Features of D2
- Water Resistant
- Heat Treatable
- High resistance against abrasive wear
- Good dimension stability
- High toughness and strength
- Good general purpose tool steel
Due to D2’s high toughness and strength, this makes it perfect for burnishing, centres and use in cold weather. It’s abrasion resit makes it suitable for wire drawing and its edge and abrasion good for shaving and wire glass slitting.
Size Range: 10mm to 600mm+
H13 steel is an air hardening steel which can be used for a range of applications such as hot forging and pressing dies.
Features of H13
- High strength and hardness
- Good resistance to thermal softening
- High toughness
- Resistance to heat
H13 Hardness makes it perfect for use in pins, forging hot and coining hot and nozzles.
01 steel is a cold, hardening steel that offers good durability and is a good general purpose tool steel. 01 steel can be hardened in oil and is wear resistance.
It’s stability and precise size controls make it good for use in straight edges, stripper plates, spindles, and cams.
