Designation by Standards
Chemical Composition (in weight %)
This steel is one of the high duty shock resisting tool steel types.
All kinds of cold and hot pneumatic tools, cold and hot cutting shears for plate, pressing dies.
Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature
Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 210
Density [g/cm3]: 7.90
Thermal conductivity [W/m.K]: 25.0
Electric resistivity [Ohm mm2/m]: 0.30
Specific heat capacity[J/g.K]: 0.46
Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion 10-6 oC-1
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 890-930oC, 860-900oC followed by oil or water quenching. Hardness after quenching is 56-59, 61-64 HRC.
Tempering temperature: 150-400oC
Tempering Temperature (oC) vs. Hardness (HRC)
Hot forming temperature: Heat slowly and uniformly to 1000oC. Forge within a range of 1000/800oC reheating if necessary. Cool slowly (preferably in a furnace) to avoid setting up stresses.
Corrosion resistance of this alloy is better than that of plain carbon steels. However it will rust unless given protective treatment.
