Q10

Characteristics

Tool steel Domimnial Q10 is designed for stamping under the forging press. In comparison with classic qualities such as 1.2343, 1.2344, 1.2365, 1.2367 this material excels in the higher toughness, firmness during the heat and resistance to the hot abrasion. It is delivered in the soft-annealed state.

Suitability

Forging inserts for stamping under the press, extrusion tools, matrixes, holders of matrixes, thorns, tools for hot work.

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
