Tool Steels

We stock a range of tool steels which find use in producing precision cutting tools, dies, punches, and other components used to fabricate metal parts.

Our products are high-quality carbon or alloy steels designed to produce cutting tools, moulds, and tooling components. Tool steels withstand high temperatures, resist wear and abrasion, and maintain a sharp cutting edge. Products are distinguishable based on chemical composition and mechanical properties, with different grades suitable for various applications.

Some common types include air-hardened, water-hardened, oil hardened and high-speed. Our products find use in many industries, including automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, and construction.

The unique combination of properties makes tool steel an excellent choice for applications requiring high durability, wear resistance, and toughness.

  • Excellent hardness and wear resistance
  • Good machinability
  • Excellent toughness with the ability to resist high stresses and impacts
  • Can withstand high temperatures without mechanical properties loss
