Technical properties

Secondary-hardening, ledeburitic cold work steel, can be used for a wide range of applications. Low distortion, excellent wear resistance and good toughness. Temper-resistant, even at high hardening temperatures. In addition it can be nitrated without any reduction in hardness even for a cold work steel.
