H13 Steel Block
H13 Tool Steel is an air hardening, 5% chromium die steel which is an excellent choice for a wide range of hot work and cold work applications. It is widely used for aluminum, zinc, and magnesium die casting dies where resistance to thermal fatigue due to alternated heating and cooling cycles is of primary importance. The high vanadium content of H13 increases its resistance to wash caused by the erosive action of the die casting alloy, increase its resistance to heat checking and imparts superior properties at elevated temperatures. H13 also has excellent impact strength to resist cleavage cracking, is easy to machine, can be water cooled in service, and has excellent size change characteristics.
Other typical hot work uses are aluminum extrusions dies and backers, brass extrusion dummy blocks, shear knives, and forging applications. In foraging work, it is recommended for die blocks, inserts, punches, pierces, and heading dies.
H13 is finding increasing usage in cold work applications such as die cases for inserted cold heading dies and intermediate sendzimir rolls. It is often used as a cold work shock steel because of its excellent toughness.
