    Description
    This alloy is one of the common water hardening tool steel grades available. W1 is basically a simple high carbon steel and is easily hardened by heating and quenching in water, just as with plain carbon steel alloys. The W series of tool steels are a very simple alloy group, low cost, and responsive to simple heating and water quenching for hardening. The alloy does undergo considerable distortion during quenching.

    Applications
    W1 is commonly used for hand operated metal cutting tools, cold heading, embossing taps and reamers as well as cutlery.

    Continuous Cooling Transformation (CCT) Diagram

    Soft Annealing
    Heat to 680-720oC, cool slowly in furnace. This will produce a maximum Brinell hardness of 192.

    Stress Relieving
    Stress relieving to remove machining stresses should be carried out by heating to approx. 600-650oC, holding for 1-2 hours at heat, followed by air cooling. This operation is performed to reduce distortion during heat treatment.

    Hardening
    Harden from a temperature of 780-810oC followed by water. Hardness after quenching is 64 HRC.

    Tempering
    Tempering temperature: See the data bellow.

    Forging
    Hot forming temperature: 1050-800oC.

    Machinability
    W1 is a plain carbon steel and machines with ease. It is the base line of 100% machinability on which machinability of the other tool steels is compared.

    Corrosion Resistance
    This is a plain carbon steel and it will corrode unless protected.

    Welding
    W1 may be welded by all of the standard techniques.
