ES Maximum 500 – 1.2343 ESU

Hot work steel with good toughness as ESR

Good high temperature strength, resistance to thermal shock and high temperature wear with the very highest toughness, a combination of characteristics to match the highest requirements encountered in use;compliance with all requirements of SEP 1614, VDG and the DGM conditions of delivery for extrusion tools.

Product features
  • X 37 CrMo V 5-1
  • As-supplied condition: structurally treated max. 229 HB (770 N/mm²)
  • General fields of application: For particularly high requirements for homogeneity and toughness for pressure die casting tools for light metal; toolsfor forging machines, dies, die inserts, extrusion tools, punches and press dies for light metal processing, tools for screw, nut and bolt manufacturing, hot shearing knives, highly polished plastic moulds.
  • ES Maximum 500 is manufactured using the latest secondary metallurgy techniques. Numerous complementary quality improvement processes result in an extremely homogenous hot worksteel with isotropic properties.
