Sheets: Grade 420 Stainless

This material can be heat treated to achieve high strength values due to its high C content. Heat tints or scale from heat treatment reduce corrosion resistance and should be removed chem- ically (e.g. pickling baths or pickling pastes) or mechanically (e.g. by grinding or blasting with glass beads or iron- and sulfur-free quartz sand). Machining is comparable to that of an unalloyed structural steel. Tools should be made of good quality high-speed steel or carbide. ITS 420 Stainless can be polished.  ITS 420 Stainless is used for parts which are subject to wear, e.g. blades for table and kitchen knives, penknife blades and meat knives as well as for caliper gauges, surgical instruments, brake discs and press plates.

Sheets: Grade D2

Use D-2 for applications requiring long runs and close tolerances. Use it for tools and dies for blanking, punching, forming, cold-extruding, and other operations requiring high compressive strength and excellent wear resistance. D2 has many advantages including Air-Hardening: which results in minimum change in size and shape during heat treatment. It is the most stable of all tool steels. Deep hardening, ex- tremely high wear-resistance.

Sheets: Grade ITS NIOLOX SPECIAL

ITS “Niolox” Special Wear Stainless Steel will greatly improve wear resistance for many knife applications such as Food Cutting Knives, Hunting Knives, Hobby Knives etc. Niolox tool steel for oil-quenching with good toughness and edge-holding ability at moderate cor- rosion resistance. Besides its main application for cutter knives in the food processing industry, this steel is used for all industrial knife applications where maintenance of the cutting edges and mod- erate corrosion resistance is required. At increased requirements to corrosions resistance, espe- cially in salt or acid containing medias, it is recommended not to use tempering temperatures above 420 C. Carbide precipitations on the grain boundaries may cause otherwise pitting corro- sion.

Sheets: Grade ITS EXTRA VANADIUM

ITS Special Extra Vanadium is a superior semi-high speed steel used extensively for solid machine knife application and cold working applications in place of established high speed grades. ITS provides extra toughness and wear resistance at a reduced cost when compared to AISI M-2. Providing greater wear than D-2 and also as a substitute for high speed steels in cold working application. can be hardened at less temperature than other high speed steels.

Sheets: Grade D2

Use D-2 for applications requiring long runs and close tolerances. Use it for tools and dies for blanking, punching, forming, cold-extruding, and other operations requiring high compressive strength and excellent wear resistance. D2 has many advantages including Air-Hardening: which results in minimum change in size and shape during heat treatment. It is the most stable of all tool steels. Deep hardening, ex- tremely high wear-resistance.

Sheets: Grade S7

S-7 is suitable for a wide range of tool and die work where shock-resistance, medium hotwork
properties, or for ease of machining due to its unusual combination of properties.
Uses include hot and cold shock applications such as rivet sets, chisels, punches, hot
headers and gripper dies. Also good for short run dies used in cold-forging, blanking and
bending.

Sheets: Grade H13

Use H13 grade for application where drastic cooling is required during the operation, and where high red hardness and resistance to heat checking are important. This grade has found wide acceptance for die casting for zinc, white metals, aluminum and magnesium. It is widely used for extrusion dies, trimmer dies, gripper dies, hot shear blades and other hot work applications. H13 has many advantages including a high resistance to heat checking, good red hardness, shock re- sistance, great machineability, dimensional stability and excellent hardening ability.
