GUTERL D-2 is a high-hardenability tool and die steel of the high-carbon, high-chromium type. It has high compressive strength, his resistance to abrasion, minimum distortion in hardening but only fair toughness. Among its many uses are rolls, punches, shear blades, lathe centers and many types of cutting and forming dies. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: TS-380. Producer or source: Guterl Special Steel Corporation.
