BUSTER ALLOY 60 is a widely accepted tungsten shock-resisting tool steel. Its performance is unequalled in most shock and impact tools used under very demanding conditions. It is deep hardening and combines this quality with excellent wear resistance and good toughness. Buster Alloy 60 will withstand repeated heating to 700-800 F, when used in lower temperature hot-work applications. Among its many uses are shear blades, hand chisels, pneumatic tools, coining dies, hot-heading dies, forging dies and machine parts. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, and machining. Filing Code: TS-455.
