Pre hardened corrosion resistant steel with good polishability
X 38 CrMo 16
As supplied condition: Quenched & Tempered 280-325 HB (950-1100 N / mm2) Corrosion-resistant mould tool steel with a modified analysis which shows a limited content of delta ferrite. Due to this the polishability, toughness and machinability are considerably improved.
Applications: Tools for the processing of corrosive plastics.
Highest corrosion resistance with polished surface although nitriding 1.2316 will reduce its corrosion resistance
