Designation by Standards
Chemical Composition (in weight %)
Low alloyed W cold working tool steel.
Twist drills and tapes, ejectors, punches, reamers, countersinks, engraving tools, metal cutting saws. Usually delivered as silver steel.
Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature
Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 215
Density [g/cm3]: 7.85
Thermal conductivity [W/m.K]: 31.5
Electric resistivity [Ohm mm2/m]: 0.30
Specific heat capacity[J/g.K]: 0.46
Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion 10-6 oC-1
Continuous Cooling Transformation (CCT) Diagram
Heat to 720-750oC, cool slowly in furnace. This will produce a maximum Brinell hardness of 230.
Stress relieving to remove machining stresses should be carried out by heating to approx. 650oC, holding for 1-2 hours at heat, followed by air cooling. This operation is performed to reduce distortion during heat treatment.
Harden from a temperature of 760-820oC, 800-840oC followed by water or oil quenching. Hardness after quenching is 64-66 HRC.
Tempering temperature: 150-250oC.
Tempering Temperature (oC) vs. Hardness (HRC)
Hot forming temperature: 1050-850oC.
