Steel Properties

HCHCR-D2 steel is Cold Work Steel with High Carbon High Chromium contents. The Quality with high wear resistant and toughness properties due to Vanadium addition of 0.90% . Normally it supply condition is an Annealed and will offer hardness to reach 57-59 HRC. It can be machinable in the annealed condition. D2 is the superior steels than D3 due to high alloys properties.
