ICO-2800

ICO-2800 is a maraging tool steel with exceptional levels of mechanical resistance and toughness at high hardness of up to 58 - 60 HRc. ICO-2800 provides high resistance to the nucleation of fatigue cracks and also high fracture toughness against shock and twist. ICO-2800 is a good substrate for ceramic coatings like PVD, and especially CVD, and other superficial treatments – for detailed information please contact ROVALMA. ICO-2800 provides outstanding dimensional stability during the precipitation hardening and thereby enables great opportunities to considerably reduce tool manufacturing costs and lead time to production.

Applications:

  • Tools, dies and molds with high toughness requirements for cutting, drawing, stamping, bending, and injection of diverse materials for working temperature up to 700 °C
  • Die inserts for injection of thermoplastics under very severe working conditions
  • Dies and punches for pressing powder - sintered pieces
  • Hot chamber nozzles for injecting Zamak
  • Hollow axes for transmitting big torques at high speed and with little weight
  • Subjection tooling and high severity springs
  • Temper screws and endless screws, high power axes and gears for high power in reduced spaces or of small mass
  • For applications requiring highest possible mechanical resistance and toughness at hardness levels up to 58 - 60 HRc

Delivery Condition:

  • Solubilized - requires precipitation hardening before usage

Typical Working Hardness Range:

  • 58-60 HRc
