Physical properties Hardness (delivery condition) Tensile strength Rm (as received condition) Working hardness Thermal expansion coefficient 10-6m/(m • K) max. 190 HB approx. 650 N/mm2 max. 54 HRC (surface hardness) 20 - 100°C 12.5 20°C Thermal conductivity W/(m • K) 44.9 Technical properties 41.6 20 - 200°C 13.0 350°C 20 - 300°C 13.6 20 - 400°C 14.1

Unalloyed tool steel with excellent machining properties for unhardened parts (e.g. fixture construction), due to its carbon proportion (0.45 %) it can be hardened, but has a low depth of hardening. Shallow depth case-hardening steel with a hard surface and a tough core.

Applications

Machine construction, construction materials, jigs, base plates, moulding frames, small dies, hand tools, simple knives, sledges, pliers, forks, hatchets, axes, shears, screwdrivers, chisels.
