Designation by Standards
Chemical Composition (in weight %)
Cold work tool steel. Shock resisting tool steel with good toughness at high strength levels.
Different cutting parts, chisels, rivet sets, punches, driver bits.
Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature
Density [g/cm3]: 7.74
Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion 10-6 oC-1
Continuous Cooling Transformation (CCT) Diagram
Time-Temperature Transformation (TTT) Diagram
Heat to 770-800oC, cool slowly in furnace. This will produce a maximum Brinell hardness of 229.
Stress relieving to remove machining stresses should be carried out by heating to 650oC, holding for one hour at heat, followed by air cooling. This operation is performed to reduce distortion during heat treatment.
Harden from a temperature of 880-920oC followed by oil quenching. Hardness after quenching is 63 HRC.
Tempering temperature: See the data bellow.
Tempering Temperature (oC) vs. Hardness (HRC)
Hot forming temperature: 1050-900oC.
