GUTERL A-2 is a high-hardenability cold-work tool and die steel with excellent non-deforming properties. It is air hardening and therefore exhibits a high degree of dimensional stability in heat treatment. It is recommended where the application requires a good combination of machinability, wear resistance and toughness. Among the many uses of Guterl A-2 are shear blades, blanking and forming dies, punches and burnishing tools. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, and machining. Filing Code: TS-364.
