- Very high chipping resistance
- High compressive strength
- Good machinability

Property Comparison Chart

Chemical Composition:

Carbon |  Chrome |  Manganese |  Molybdenum | Silicon |  Vanadium 
   2.3   4.8    0.4    3.6    0.4    8 

Application Areas:
- Stamping
- Blanking
- Fine Blanking

It is especially useful in high wear applications for example stamping/fineblanking in Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS-materials) where a high wear and chipping resistance is needed in combination with high compressive strength.

Another application is stamping/blanking of high abrasive steels like electrical steel sheet. Although the material is very wear resistant, it is the most easily machined material in its class, and offers a very good dimension stability in heat treated condition.
