L-6 Oil Hardening Tool Steel

Description

L-6 tool steel is a versatile, oil-hardening tool steel that is characterized by very good toughness. L-6 tool steel is suitable for use as tools, dies, and machine parts which require a good combination of hardness and toughness. The relatively high nickel content results in an alloy with greater impact toughness compared to the other common oil-hardening grades
