HTCS®-140Hot work steel with very high thermal conductivity (up to 50 W/mK at high hardness), combined with high wear resistance and high mechanical properties, as well as very good red hardness at reduced costs. Applications:
- Moulds, inserts and tools for hot stamping and plastic injection moulding to reduce manufacturing costs by increasing the tool durability and to increase the process productivity through cycle time reductions, improving a homogenous temperature distribution, and reducing the generation of generated scraps.
- Other applications, in which a combination of high thermal conductivity and high wear resistance along with a very good resistance to high temperatures is particularly beneficial.
- Annealed up to ~ 220HB
- 48 ÷ 56 HRc
