HWS® Premium

Powder metalurgical steel with an increased toughness compared to HWS® Isotropic, and with very high wear resistance. Can be nitrided and coated.

Applications:
  • Hard cutting of AHSS (Advanced High Strength Steel) sheets with mechanical resistance above 600 MPa [87 ksi] and up to 1600 MPa [232 ksi], and/or significant thickness. Slender punching tools and thin panel dies
  • Dies for pressing powders, bakelites, charged thermoplastics, composites, or in the other dies onto which high pressures are applied
  • Blades for circular and rectangular cutting, for plastic mills or guillotine type cutting
  • Hot forging stamps for which thermal shock is not a critical factor
Delivery condition:
  • Annealed to maximum 280 HB
Working hardness:
  • 56÷64 HRc
