TENASTEEL ®

Characteristics

Material TENASTEEL® is a technologically advanced material designed for demanding applications of cold working of metals. By using the innovative technology of production, the high cleanness of macrostructure of material, which together with precipitates of titanium creates the optimal matrix for coating tools, was achieved. By lowering the content of chrome against the oil 1.2379, the workability of material has been improved. On the whole, TENASTEEL® excels against the steel 1.2379 by higher hardness in the pressure, it resists abrasion of external environment more effectively and with the higher temperature of tempering it is suitable for a broader spectrum of coating technologies. Material TENASTEEL® is delivered in the annealed state with the maximum hardness of 250HB.

Suitability

Steel TENASTEEL® better replaces the classic steel 1.2379 in all areas of its usage – tools for cutting and working of the metals, cutting of the aluminum, stainless steel, copper etc. It can be further used in the segment of steel treatment and recycling (knives, scissors ….). TENASTEEL® is very suitable for treatment of high-strength metal sheets, e.g. in the car industry.

Tool steel meets the requirements of various kinds of tools, e.g. for machining, hot- and cold-working, measuring instruments and die-casting moulds. These tool materials conform to great quality demands of steel, like temper, strength, toughness, resistance to tempering, hardening capacity, dimensional stability, etc. The range of tool steel in our store includes products from renowned manufacturers. We also supply high - speed steel.

Special tool steel is suitable for the manufacture of moulds, dies and pressing tools. This steel have better end-use properties than common classic steel, therefore it can help saving considerable amounts of money in manufacture.

This patented Swedish steel is distinguished by its high range of use. It is suitable for the manufacture of tools and moulds as well as machinery parts. This material can replace many kinds of classic tool and structural steel.

We supply these grades of steel: St52.3, C45, 16MnCr5, 42CrMo4
