CARPENTER 883 PLUS is a 5% Chromium hot work die steel designed for applications requiring both toughness and good red-hardness. It achieves this with higher purity, homogeneity and greater structural integrity than standard AISI type H13. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, and machining. Filing Code: TS-529. Producer or source: Carpenter. See also Alloy Digest TS-469, January 1987.
