VASCO WEAR is an air-hardening, cold-work die steel developed to provide high resistance to wear at exceptionally good levels of toughness. It also has the high compressive strength necessary for maximum resistance to upsetting. Its many uses include such applications as thread-rolling dies, punches and blanking dies. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, elasticity, and compressive strength as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on wear resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: TS-320. Producer or source: Teledyne Vasco.
