A-11, M-4, M-42, T-15 Powdered Metal High Speed Tool Steel

Description

A-11 tool steel is a high vanadium tool steel. This grade possesses wear resistance superior to most other tool steels along with good strength and toughness characteristics.

M-4 alloy is a molybdenum-tungsten-bearing powder high speed tool steel containing high carbon and vanadium. This trade possesses a very high wear resistance coupled with high strength

M-42 alloy is a powder metal super-high-speed steel possessing a hardness capability of Rockwell C 68/70. This alloy has been used for cutting tools in the toughest machining operations. The advantages M-42 high speed steels include ease of grinding, response to heat treatment, more uniform structure, greater wear resistance and improved toughness.

T-15 alloy is a high-carbon tungsten-cobalt-vanadium high speed powder metal tool steel possessing excellent abrasion resistance and red hardness
