PKT-117 is a pre-hardened hot work steel, combining a good toughness-hardness ratio, good thermal conductivity, high temperature wear resistance, very high compression strength and good machinability. PKT-117 can be nitrided and coated - for detailed information please contact ROVALMA.


  • Dies and molds for injection of thermoplastics, thermosets, zinc based alloys, and in some conditions of aluminium based alloys (big dimension dies without excessively large pulls)
  • Sliders, preferably nitrided, plate insert-carriers, dolly, die bases, hold-down plates, columns, and bushes for dies; jackets for hot banding of hard metal cores, forging stamps, or steels at high hardness
  • Dies for hot and cold deburring, cutting dies for silver, alpaca and soft alloys
  • Punching tools and stamping dies
  • Forging stamps, mandrels, pushers, and extrusion die holders
  • Shear and folding blades, gears, shafts, pins, broaches, and screws
  • Prototyping dies for hot stamping

Delivery Condition:

  • Flats: pre-hardened to ~42-46 HRc. Stock availability of grinded plates ready for EDM.
