BRAKE DIE is a medium-alloy tool steel heat treated at the mill by oil-quenching and tempering to develop the best combination of properties. It is used for all types of dies on hand-operated and mechanically operated press brakes for the forming and bending of sheets, strip and other flat-rolled metallic and nonmetallic materials. It also will give good service in any application requiring wear resistance, toughness, high mechanical properties and good machinability. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, elasticity, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: TS-302. Producer or source: Bethlehem Steel Corporation.
