D2 Round Bar | 2379 Steel | SKD11 | XW41 | X153CrMoV12
D2 Tool Steel (or equivalent as SKD11, 1.2379, XW41 Steel Plate, X153CrMoV12)
D2 Tool Steel is 12% chrome steel, very high resistance against abrasive and adhesive wear due to a high volume of hard carbides in the steel matrix, good toughness, very good dimensional stability, high compressive strength, very good base material for PVD/CVD coating as well as nitriding due to its secondary hardening properties. Similar to AISI D2.
Applications : Cutting, punching, stamping tools, shear blades, thread rolling dies, cold extrusion dies, drawing and bending tools, flanging and straightening rolls, fine cutting tools, deep drawing tools, plastic moulds for abrasive polymers.
