Chemical Composition (%)

W.Nr.1.2367 Hot Work Tool Steel is Chrome–molybdenum–vanadium steel for hardening in oil and in air with very good hardenability, high firmness during the heat and resistance to the tempering, very good toughness and plastic properties during normal and also higher temperatures.

Good resistant to tearing of thermal fatigue and low sensitivity to quick changes of temperature.

Well-workable during the heat an well-workable in the soft-annealed state.

An increased content of Mo which in its consequence enables achieving higher firmness.


Used for movable core parts, molds for pressure casting of aluminium alloys and large series of casting of zinc and magnesium alloys.

Tools for highly stressed small and middle-sized dies and inserts of dies.

Dies thorns, jaws and punches esp. With the hight firmness.

Highly stressed extruders and other auxiliary tools for extrusion of non-ferrous metals, extrusion dies for aluminium and alloys

Tools for hot cutting, small or middle-sized shear blades, trimming dies and cutting thorns.
