It is a steel with a high content of vanadium and produced by ESR technology (electro slag remelting), it belongs to the family of tool grade steels for cold work of 8% Cr; it is characterized by:

  • High toughness.
  • High ductility.
  • High resistance to wear (abrasive and adhesive).
  • High resistance to compression.
  • With better performance for PVD-type metallic coatings than conventional steels, such as D2 and A2.
  • Good hardenability.
  • Good resistance to tempering.
