4Cr13 0.36-0.45 ≤ 0.60 ≤ 0.80 ≤ 0.030 ≤ 0.030 12.00-14.00

It is a kind of Martensite stainless steel with low corrosion, high-alloy, low warpage steel for through hardening with excellent properties for mirror polishing as well as good photoetching, good machinability, high wear resistance and high dimensional stability.


Used for making Mould plates and inserts for working with chemically aggressive plastics; because of excellent polishing, suitable for optical and medical products

Forging Technique
Heat Temperature Start Forging Temperature Finish Forging Temperature Cooling Method
Slowly heat to 800°C, then
quickly heat to final forging
1160 - 1200°C >=850°C Ash coolinor sand cooling,
with timely annealing
Heat Treatment


840 to 870°C

Slow controlled cooling in furnace at a rate of 10 to 20°C/hr down to approx. 600°C, further cooling in air. Hardness after annealing: max. 235 HB.


Stress relieving

Approx. 650°C

Slow cooling in furnace; intended to relieve stresses set up by extensive machining, or in complex shapes. After through heating, hold in neutral atmosphere for 1 - 2 hours.



1000 to 1050°C / Oil, air

Holding time after temperature equalization: 15 to 30 minutes.

Obtainable hardness: 53-56 HRC



100 to 200°C (212 to 392°F)

Slow heating to tempering temperature immediately after hardening / time in furnace

1 hour for each 20 mm of work piece thickness but at least 2 hours / cooling in air.

For average hardness figures to be obtained please refer to the tempering chart.
