Types, characteristics and applications of hot work die steel
In recent years, my country has done a lot of work in the research and development of new type die steels,

The localization research has provided the market with high-quality and cheap die steel. The following briefly introduces the types and application progress of hot work die steel


1. Has been included in the national standard hot work die steel

The hot work die steel series has been included in the national standard “GB/T1299-2000 Alloy Tool Steel”, which can be divided into main chemical components

W series, Cr-Mo series, Cr-W-Mo series and other types.

3Cr2W8V(H21) steel, with high thermal strength, high thermal stability, good wear resistance and process performance, working temperature

Reach 650°C. Disadvantages: severe segregation of carbides, better plasticity, toughness, thermal conductivity, resistance to cold and heat fatigue and corrosion resistance

difference. my country was introduced from the former Soviet Union in the 1950s. It has a short service life, high alloying degree and high cost. At present, it has basically

Eliminated. Due to the limitation of steel grade and technology, my country is still in mass production and use.

it is good. H13 steel (an improved version of H11 steel) is currently the main material for hot forging steel and cold forging die sleeves in China, and it is also a highly versatile hot

As die steel, it is an ideal steel to replace 3Cr2W8V steel, and its life can be increased by 2-3 times.

4Cr3Mo3SiV(H10) steel has high toughness, high resistance to high temperature softening and medium level of wear resistance. Can replace

3Cr2W8V steel making hot extrusion die. The thermal stability of 4Cr5W2VSi steel is higher than that of H13 and H21 steel, and its toughness is between H13 and H21.

Appropriate high-speed upsetting die, the service life is 0.5-1 times longer than H21 steel.

3Cr3Mo3W2V (HM1) steel has excellent strength and toughness, high thermal strength, wear resistance, tempering stability, and resistance to cold and heat fatigue

The performance of the mold working under high load, rapid cold and hot conditions is better than 4Cr5W2VSi and 3Cr2W8V steel, and the mold life is longer than

3Cr2W8V steel raises the standard by 2-3 times.

5Cr4W5MoV(RM2) steel has a working temperature of 700℃, which has high tempering resistance and thermal stability, and high thermal strength.

High temperature hardness and wear resistance, but its toughness and thermal fatigue resistance are lower than H13 steel. Suitable for production with high high temperature strength and

The anti-wear hot work die can replace 3Cr2W8V steel, and the die life can be increased by 2-4 times.

The 5Cr4Mo3SiMnVAl(012AI) steel has a working temperature of 700℃ or higher, and has high thermal strength, high temperature hardness, and anti-return

Fire stability, wear resistance and thermal fatigue resistance, toughness and thermal processing plasticity are good, and the nitriding performance is good. Can replace 3Cr2W8V steel mold

The life span can be increased by 3-5 times.

2. Part of the hot work die steel series has been included in the ministerial standard

4Cr40Mo2WSiV (YB/T210-1976) steel has high thermal stability, toughness, wear resistance and crack resistance, and its stability

Qualitatively better than 4Cr5W2VSi and 4Cr5MoSiV1 steel, it is similar to 3Cr2W8V steel.

3Cr2W8MoV (JB/T6399-1992) steel is an improved type of 3Cr2W8V steel.

3Cr3Mo3VNb (HB5137-1980) steel is a kind of ultra-high strength and toughness hot work die steel.

4Cr5MoSiV1, 4Cr5W2VSi, 3Cr2W8V steel has higher high temperature toughness, thermal stability, thermal strength, wear resistance and resistance

Thermal fatigue performance, good cold and hot processing performance. spring
