A2 Tool Steel Hardened & Ground Round

An air-hardening, cold work medium alloy grade containing 5% chromium, A2 is preferable to O1 in applications requiring greater size stability, machinability and safer hardening. Its toughness and wearability make it particularly useful in longer production runs on either light or heavy gauge stock. Applications include: blanking dies, forming dies, trimming dies, stamping dies, coining dies, drawing dies, extrusion dies, punches, shear and slitter blades, gauges, knurling tools, rolls, mandrels and machine parts.
