H-13 Steel for Mold Making
Durable Steel for Long-Run Productions
H-13 steel’s excellent combination of shock and wear resistance makes it ideal for long-run productions of massed produced products. H-13 steel is a chromium, molybdenum, vanadium hot work tool steel characterized by high hardenability and excellent toughness. It’s stability in heat gives it better resistance than other common alloy steels. Tool steel refers to carbon and alloy steels with properties that lend themselves well to being made into tools like H-13, S7 and P20 steels.
