D2 Tool Steel
D2 tool steel is a high-carbon steel that is air-hardened and finds use in cutting tool, punch and die production.
D2 is a highly versatile engineering material which provides various performance benefits. Excellent wear resistance, superior toughness and hardness and good corrosion resistance are all features. D2 tool steel sharpens easily, which extends material life in areas such as cutting tools and knives.
- Resists heavy impact
- Excellent wear resistance
- Impressive toughness
Toughness and Hardness:
D2 tool steel is robust. The material is tough enough to withstand heavy impact and resists chipping and cracking. The hardness is ideal for cutting tools since the leading edge does not deform and will maintain a sharp, consistent edge.
