AL TECH HURON is a cold-work tool steel developed for applications requiring high resistance to wear or to abrasion and for resistance to heavy pressure rather than to sudden shock. Because of these qualities and its good nondeforming properties, it is unsurpassed (for an oil-hardening tool steel) for die work on long production runs. It has superior depth of hardening. Its many applications include cold trimmer dies, lamination dies, plug gages, slitting cutters and blanking, stamping and cold-forming dies and punches for long runs. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and compressive strength as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, and machining. Filing Code: TS-481. Producer or source: AL Tech Specialty Steel Corporation.
