Carbon tool steel characterized by high hardness of hardening layer, high toughness and especially good insensitivity to hardening cracks. Further the steel is characterized by good ductility during the heat and good workability in the annealed state.
For small, simple-shaped and less stressed machines for punching, drawing, forming, extrusion, pushing and cold-work cutting, auxiliary hardened components of extrusion machines and molds. Further the steel is used for forgings for rotary forging, small and simple or folded molds for mechanical working of plastic substances and rubber, tools for woodworking, manual marking dies, shear blades, transmission cutters, edges of weights, clamping tools etc.
|Steel grade||Chemical composition in %||Hardness in the state|
|C||Mn||Si||Cr||W||Mo||V||Ni max||Co||P max.||S max.||HB max.||HRC min.|
|ČSN 19 191||0,95-1,09||0,20-0,35||0,15-0,30||0,15||0,20||0,025||0,030||200||64|
|Forging||800-1000||Cool slowly in calm air or better e.g. in dry ash or other thermally-insulated material|
|Normalization||790-810||Cool in air|
|Soft annealing||680-710||Warm few hours (according to the size of object), mostly four hours are enough and cool slowly in the furnace|
|Annealing to lower tension||600-650||Warm 1 to 2 hours and cool slowly in the furnace|
|Hardening||in water||750-770||Small and shape-complicated objects|
|770-830||Big and simple objects|
|in oil||790-820||Thin cross-sections of thickness up to 3 mm|
|Tempering||180-300||Cool in air, the degree of tempering is set by hardness and toughness of instrument according to the tempering chart|

Tool steel meets the requirements of various kinds of tools, e.g. for machining, hot- and cold-working, measuring instruments and die-casting moulds. We also offer high-speed steel.
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 has 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
