Tool Steel encompasses a wide range of carbon and alloy steels, suitable for the transformation into instruments. Hardness, abrasion resistance and deformation of tool steels are common and efficient properties. These materials are extremely robust and allow mass manufacturing of molded plastics used in various applications.Tool steel provides other benefits, such as high wear resistance, good hardenability, good thermal conductivity, cost-effective surface finish and alloying elements for polishing and acid processing. These properties make steel tool ideal to be used in different sectors of end use.

Global growth in the automotive industry is driving business growth across the board. Long production runs are a key feature of the automotive industry and thus require strong die product that is capable of withstanding tough engineering conditions. Consequently, automotive industries favor tool steel because of its intrinsic advantages as well as its properties. Furthermore, usage guarantees limited interruptions, high productivity and less maintenance costs. Due to the growing demand for carbide-based alternatives, the market would be adversely impacted at any time.
