EN/DIN 1.2343/ AISI H11/ JIS SKD 6Hot work steel with good mechanical strength at high temperature, high toughness and good ductility, as well as high tempering resistance combined with good machinability and polishability. Refined through an electro-slag-remelting process and a tailored thermo-mechanical processing, this hot work grade can achieve very high levels of toughness. Applications:
- Big molds for die casting of light alloys
- Aluminium extrusion tools, such as liners, extrusion stems, container mantles, pressure pads, liner holders, mandrels, die holders and extrusion dies.
- Sliders, punches, forging stamps and blades for circular cutting, or die inserts for plastic injection requiring high polishing and toughness.
- Annealed up to ~ 230HB
- 38 ÷ 56 HRc
