Tool Steel / High-Speed Steel

High-Speed Steels / Tool Steel are high-performance special steels combining high toughness and hardness levels, have a high yield limit, high fatigue strength, and high fracture strength, and are suitable when abrasive/adhesive wear resistance is required. Tool steels can hold a cutting edge, resist deformation at elevated temperatures, and are useful for making objects intended to resist tampering (such as locks and hinges). Substantial proportions of elements like tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, and chromium, which can form carbides, give tool steel these properties.
Typical Applications

High-Speed Steels are widely used in many applications: cutting tools (drills, end mills, taps, reamers, etc.), saws, knives, cold- & hot-work tooling and wear parts.

High-speed tool steel powders are used in tools for the hot-forming of metals.

Tool Steel is suited to shape other materials, for example, cutting, machining, stamping, or forging.
