CPM 15V is an upgrade from CPM 10V (Alloy Digest TS-340, February 1987) providing even longer tool life. It offers an alternative tooling material for high-wear applications where carbide is failing by fracture or where intricate tool design makes carbide difficult to fabricate. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on heat treating and surface treatment.
