Tool Steel & High Speed Steel

AISI A-2 Air Hardening 5% Chrome Tool Steel

A2 has the ability to hold a keen cutting edge with good abrasion resistance and toughness yet still fairly machinable. This grade has excellent non-deforming properties because of the 5% chromium content, and should be considered for medium long run dies.

AISI D-2 Air Hardening 12% Chrome Tool Steel

This grade of D2 has a high degree of hardness and wear resistance combined with toughness. Distortion is reduced due to air hardening and it has better stability after heat treatment than any other cold worked die steel.

AISI H-13 Tool Steel

H13 is used for extrusion tools, molds, and dies, as well as other applications. Hot work steel, providing a balance of toughness, heat check resistance, and high temperature strength, as well as moderate wear resistance.

AISI M-2 Tool Steel

M@ is mostly used for cutting tools. it can withstand higher temperatures without losing its temper (hardness) to permit faster cutting. High hardness and abrasion resistance are its main characteristics.

AISI O-1 Oil Hardened Tool Steel

O1, a tool steel being altered by oil hardening gives excellent performance where relatively high hardness and deep penetration with minimum distortion is required. O1 is easy to machine and safe in hardening, with good wear resistance and toughness.

AISI O-6 Oil Hardened Tool Steel

This grade of tool steel offers outstanding ease of machining. These graphitic particles add increased resistance to wear and galling in service. O6 is safe and easy to handle during heat treatment due to the broad hardening range. Flats and square sizes are regular O6 material; rounds are Graph-MO*.

AISI S-7 Shock Resisting Tool Steel

This shock-resisting S7 steel has exceptional impact properties. It has physical properties that make it suitable for an extremely wide range of tool and die applications where shock resistance, medium hot-work properties, ease of machining, and safe heat treatment are important.
