Specifications

In steel H13, the molybdenum and vanadium act as strengthening agents. The chromium content assists die steel H-13 to resist softening when used at high temperatures. H-13 die steels offers an excellent combination of shock and abrasion resistance, and possesses good red hardness. It is capable of withstanding rapid cooling and resists premature heat checking. Tool Steel H13 has good machinability, good weldability, good ductility, and can be formed by conventional means.

Due to H13 tool steel excellent combination of high toughness and fatigue resistance, AISI H13 hot work tool steel is used more than any other tool steel in tooling applications.


Applications:

1.2344 steel has good mechanical properties and is used widely in industry, such as forming extrusion dies, forging die with large impact load, precision forging die and etc. It can satisfy the needs of the quality requirements of the mold. By the way, the surface of the mold passes through nitriding or cyanidation, the service life of the mold would increase.

Specifications:

Preheat Prior to Hardening

Warm slightly before charging into the preheat furnace, which should be operating at 1400°-1500°F.


Hardening

H13 tool steel is a steel having very high hardenability and should be hardened by cooling in still air. The use of a salt bath or controlled atmosphere furnace is desirable to minimize decarburization, and if not available, pack hardening in spent pitch coke is suggested. The temperature employed is usually 1800°-1850°F, depending on size section.


Quenching

Quench in still air or dry air blast. If complicated forms are to be hardened, an interrupted oil quench can be used. Quench part in oil and remove from the bath when it just loses its color (1000°-1100°F). Finish cooling to below 150°-125°F in air, then tempers immediately.


Tempering

Tempering is carried out in 1.2344 tool steels from 538 to 649°C (1000 to 1200°F) to obtain Rockwell C hardness of 53 to 38. Double tempering can also be performed in these steels for every one hour at the preferred tempering temperature.


ADVANTAGE:

High hardenability and toughness

Great resistance for thermal cracking

The secondary hardening ability in tempering is bad due to its lower carbon content

The deformation is small after heat treatment

Good machinability.
