Tool Steel HDS H13

Tool Steel HDS H13 is a versatile chromium-molybdenum hot work steel that is widely used in hot work and cold work tooling applications. The hot hardness (hot strength) of H13 resists thermal fatigue cracking which occurs as a result of cyclic heating and cooling cycles in hot work tooling applications.Because of its high toughness and very good stability in heat treatment, H13 is also used in a variety of cold work tooling applications

Because of its excellent combination of high toughness and resistance to thermal fatigue cracking (also known as heat checking) H13 is used for more hot work tooling applications than any other tool steel.

In these applications, H13 provides better hardenability and better wear resistance than common alloy steels such as 4140.
