Made of dimensionally stable chromium, tungsten and vanadium electric furnace tool steel. Low 1,450-1,500 Fahrenheit hardening range makes this steel easy to harden. Vanadium content assures fine grain and high durability. Fully spheroidized and annealed for uniform carbide size and easy machining. Each piece is individually wrapped and clearly marked with size, analysis and correct hardness and tempering information. Edge squareness is .003″ per inch. Finish is 35 microinch or finer.
All rods come in 36" lengths and are AISI/SAE. Available in the following types: O-1: Oil-hardening for general tool room use. Good nondeforming characteristics. Moderate resistance to abrasion. Machinability 90%. S-7: Air-hardening molybdenum, chromium, shock resisting. High impact strength with moderate wear resistance. Machinability 95%. A-2: Air-hardening. Maximum abrasion resistance. Machinability 65%.W-1: Water hardening offers a combination of high abrasion resistance and toughness when hardened. Machinability 100%.D-2: Air hardening. Offers significantly better wear resistance and a high compressive strength. Machinability 65%.
