AISI D-2 Wear Resistant Air Hardening Tool Steel
The cold work tool steel listed under the symbol "D" are all characterized by high carbon content. Our D 2 grade is a fine quality of tool steel that is air hardening and therefore offers a high degree of dimensional stability in heat treatment. Its high carbon and vanadium content provides for its excellent wear and abrasion resistance qualities. If your application is demanding, our D -2 should be considered due to its hardness. It is free of decarb and other surface imperfections. Its low sulphur content makes it non-free machining.
Typical applications include: - Blanking dies - Gages - Rolls - Brick mold liners - Knurls - Sand slingers - Burnishing tools - Lamination dies - Shear knives - Cold forming dies - Punches - Slitter knives - Drawing dies
The chemical composition of our grade D - 2 ground flat stock falls within ranges that are rigidly monitored. These chemical ranges are shown below *
