Designation by Standards
Chemical Composition (in weight %)
Medium alloy cold work steel, oil hardening. Performances slightly inferior to those of our grade MERILOEX. Moderate deep hardening properties; good toughness.
Small to medium size blanking and punching dies, shear blades, thread cutting tools, reamers, gauges and similar measuring instruments.
Physical properties (avarage values) at ambient temperature
Modulus of elasticity [103 x N/mm2]: 210
Density [g/cm3]: 7.80
Heat to 740-760oC, 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 830-860oC followed by oil quenching (interrupt at approx. 150oC). Hardness after quenching is 64 HRC.
Tempering temperature: See the data bellow.
Tempering Temperature (oC) vs. Hardness (HRC)
Hot forming temperature: 1050-850oC.
