HWS® Premium

HWS® is high performance powder metallurgical steel with exceptional levels of wear resistance combined with extremely high toughness at high hardness for high-duty stamping, trimming and fine blanking applications, such as for example the hard or hot cutting of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) and Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS). HWS® Premium features good machinability and provides excellent support to coatings - for detailed information please contact ROVALMA.
