In a continuously cast aluminum press stud, two small foreign metal slivers were found that had caused difficulties with the cable sheathing press. Spectroscopic examination revealed the slivers consisted of a chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel with minor (unintentional) additions of copper, nickel, and cobalt. A steel of similar composition, X38Cr-MoV5 1 (W-No. 2343) was used for hot working tools. The sliver originated from a damaged press tool.
