Steel properties

High carbon high chromium tool steel in flat and round bar. This is a tool steel grade offering very high wear resistance with edge holding quality. It is an air hardening alloy tool steel with excellent resistance to wear and abrasion. As a high carbon high chromium tool steel 1.2436 has good through hardening properties and dimensional stability combined with high resistance to tempering.


Woodworking tools, thread rolling dies, deep drawing and cold extrusion tools, measuring tools, scraping and trimming tools, deburring tools, moulds for abrasive plastics.
