UNICUT 2 is a high-carbon, high-vanadium, molybdenum-type of high-speed steel. The high carbon and vanadium contents provide higher resistance to abrasion when compared with other standard high-speed steels; however, this is accomplished at a slight loss in machinability and grind-ability. In many cases, this is considered to be of minor consequence where better wear resistance is required. Typical applications include drills, reamers, milling cutters, broaches and wood-working tools. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, and hardness. It also includes information on high temperature performance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: TS-406. Producer or source: Cyclops Corporation.
