Die Steel

What Is Die Steel?

Die steels are strong, tough, hard steels with special alloying additions made to ordinary high carbon steels. They’re used to make dies for metalworking operations, such as forging, rolling, extrusion and wire drawing. Components can then be manufactured in large numbers with good dimensional tolerance.
