1. Cold work tool steel with high dimensional stability at heat treatment.
2. Very high cracking resistance. High machinability, medium thoughness and wear resistance.

Heat Treatment
680 to 720°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 af ter annealing: Max. 220 HB.

790 to 820°C
Oil, salt bath (200 to 250°C) up to 20 mm thickness. Holding time after temperature equalization: 15 to 30 minutes. Obtainable hardness: 63 - 65 HRC

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.

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 certain cases we recommend to reduce tempering temperature and increase holdingtime.
