Such profile properties include good hot strength as well as excellent ductility and toughness. Other important tool steel properties are a good resistance against thermal cyclic stresses and a good hot wear resistance.
A hot favourite in the ASSAB hot work portfolio is the Dievar with unparalleled ductility, toughness and heat checking resistance together with high hot strength and temper resistance make it the best and natural choice for a wide range of hot work applications but particularly in high pressure die casting.
Coming a close second is speciality grades such as QRO 90 Supreme and Unimax characterising further improved heat resistance and hot wear resistance at elevated temperatures.
