Our large stock of DIN 1.2083 Plastic Mold Steel | AISI420 | GB4Cr13 can meet your demand with immediate delivery. The stock involves different size range of hot rolled /forged rounds and flats, forged blocks. Delivery condiion in Annealed or Q+T.

DIN 1.2083 Plastic Mold Steel is a kind of Martensite stainless steel, with good machincability and excellent corrosion resistance, polishability, and high strength and wear resistance after heat treatment. It is widely used for making plastic moulds and transparent plastic molds which require high load, wear resistance, and work under the action of corroding medium.

4Cr130.36-0.45≤ 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 temperature 1160 - 1200°C >=850°CAsh 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.
