CPM 1V is a powder metallurgically produced high-vanadium cold-work tool steel. It is an upgrade to H13 with higher hardness and better temper resistance for longer die life. The alloy also has better heat resistance and higher hardness than H19. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, microstructure, and elasticity as well as fatigue. It also includes information on heat treating, machining, and powder metal forms. Filing Code: TS-605. Producer or source: Crucible Service Centers.
