Tool Steel Sheet

Tool Steel Sheet

We sell a wide variety of tool steels in sheet, plate and cut to size pieces.

The A series tool steels are characterized by their high hardenability and dimensional stability in heat treatment. They can all be hardened by air cooling and are suited for cold work applications.

All D series steels are resistant to softening at elevated temperatures. These also exhibit excellent wear resistance, especially D-7 due to its high carbon and vanadium content. D series tool steels all contain 1.5 to 2.35 percent carbon and about 12 percent chromium which contributes to the hardenability of these alloys. Typical applications for this class of steel include shear blades, brick molds and slitter knives.

All S series steels are characterized by their toughness and resistance to shock. The principle alloying elements in S series steels are manganese, silicon, chromium tungsten and molybdenum. We carry S-1 ESR which is a premium melted S-1. Common applications for this group of steels include chisels, punches and blades for fin tubing.

High Speed Tool Steel Sheet

High Speed Tool Steel Sheet

We sell a wide variety of high speed steels in sheet, plate and cut to size pieces.

Standard high speed steels are used in high speed cutting tool applications. We carry M type, T type and CPM® grades of high speed steels. Below are what we carry and a summary of their key characteristics. Molybdenum or M series steels contain molybdenum, tungsten, chromium, vanadium, cobalt and carbon as the principle alloying elements. M series steels are typically tougher that T series steels at the same hardness. Otherwise, their properties are similar. The T series steels use tungsten, chromium, vanadium, cobalt and carbon as the principle alloying elements. The T series steels exhibit high red hardness and wear resistance. They are also less susceptible to decarburization at high temperatures than M type steels. The high alloy content of T type steels produces a large number of hard, wear resistant carbides. The most wear resistant steel of this group is T-15.

We carry four CPM® grades of high speed steel. CPM Rex M-4® and CPM T-15® are well known and have similar chemistries to wrought M-4 and T-15. The main difference is the fine carbide structure that the CPM® process makes grinding these grades much easier. CPM Rex 20® and CPM Rex-75® are highly alloyed grades that cannot be manufactured by conventional steelmaking. CPM Rex 20® is cobalt free and yet outperforms M-42. CPM Rex-76® offers a good combination of toughness and high red hardness and also makes an excellent substrate for coatings such as TiAIN. CPM Rex-76®can be heat treated to Rc 68 to 70.

CPM Tool Steel Sheet

CPM® Tool Steel Sheet

Just as CPM® processing can allow higher alloy content for red hardness and wear resistance in high speed steels, it can also be used to produce high alloy cold work tool steels for increased wear resistance. The wear resistance of a tool steel is determined by the heat treated hardness and the amount and type of hard alloy carbides present in the microstructure. The cold work tool steels known for superior wear resistance typically contain significant amounts of vanadium with sufficient carbon to form high volumes of vanadium carbides.

CPM 1V® has shock resistance close to S-7 and wear resistance close to A-2. CPM 3V® provides impact toughness approaching that of S-7 and wear resistance higher than D-2. CPM 9V® is a modification of CPM 10V® with lower carbon and vanadium to improve toughness and heat check resistance. These enhanced properties permit CPM 9V® to perform well in problem applications where high carbon, high chromium tool steels, such as CPM 10V® or the high speed steels, lack sufficient toughness or where lower alloy tool steels and hot work tool steels lack sufficient wear resistance. CPM 10V® has four times the wear resistance of D-2 at the same toughness. CPM 15V® was developed to withstand extreme wear conditions where carbide fractures and CPM 10V® is not wear resistant enough.

Crucible continues to develop specific high vanadium CPM® grades to meet a variety of wear/toughness requirements. Bridge alloys such as CPM 110V® and CPM S125V® are two newer alloys that can be produced in sheet and plate.
