Vanadis 4 Extra is a high-alloyed powder metallurgical (PM) tool steel suitable for long-run tooling in applications with high demands on adhesive wear and chipping resistance. Due to the very carefully balanced alloying and the powder metallurgical manufacturing route, Vanadis 4 Extra has better machinability and similar heat treatment to AISI Type D2. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, machining, surface treatment, and powder metal forms. Filing Code: TS-631. Producer or source: Böhler-Uddeholm North America.
