A2 is a highly versatile general purpose tool steel with a combination of wear resistance and toughness. This steel material is used for cold-working applications including cutting equipment and high wear parts.
D2 is a high carbon, high chromium tool steel that offers high hardness, compressive strength and wear resistance. This steel material is used for cold-work applications that require sharp edges and abrasion resistance.
H13 is a tool steel optimized for high-temperature and high-wear applications and can withstand drastic cooling. This, combined with the material’s abrasion resistance makes it ideal for mold applications.
Inconel is a nickel-chromium-based superalloy that is resistant to corrosion and high temperatures. This metal material makes for good functional prototypes and end-use parts for harsh environments.
