CPM REX 25 is a super high-speed steel made without cobalt. It is comparable to AISI Type T15 cobalt-containing high-speed steel in response to heat treatment, properties, and tool performance. CPM REX 25 is recommended for machining operations requiring heavy cuts, high speeds and feeds, and difficult-to-machine materials of high hardness and abrasion resistance. Typical applications are boring tools, drills, gear cutters, punches, form tools, end mills and broaches. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, machining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: TS-365. Producer or source: Crucible Materials Corporation.
