SUPERDIE is a superior oil-hardening cold-work die steel of the high-carbon, high-chromium type. It has outstanding wear resistance combined with high hardenability and exceptional size stability. SUPERDIE is especially suited for tools and dies where dimensional limits are close, and high strength and long runs between grinds are necessary. Among its many applications are blanking dies, burnishing tools, beading rolls, lathe centers, plug gages, spinning tools, slitters and punches. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, and machining. Filing Code: TS-482.
