Bohler-Uddeholm WEARTEC SF Cold Work Tool Steel  (discontinued **)
Categories: Metal; Ferrous Metal; Alloy Steel; Chrome-moly Steel; Tool Steel; Cold Work Steel

Material Notes: Chromium-molybdenum-vanadium alloyed steel

The WEARTEC SF steel grade is a very highly alloyed spray formed cold work tool steel with a combination of extremely high wear resistance and a good resistance to cracking. WEARTEC SF is suitable for rolls and rotary knives with very high demands on abrasive wear resistance and carbide applications requiring toughness.

WEARTEC SF is characterized by:

  • Excellent abrasive wear resistance
  • High compressive strength
  • Good toughness
  • Good dimensional stability at heat treatment and in service
  • Very good through hardening properties
  • Very good resistance to tempering back
  • Good WEDM properties
  • Good surface treatment properties

Category Notes

Materials flagged as discontinued () are no longer part of the manufacturer’s standard product line according to our latest information. These materials may be available by special order, in distribution inventory, or reinstated as an active product. Data sheets from materials that are no longer available remain in MatWeb to assist users in finding replacement materials.

Users of our Advanced Search (registration required) may exclude discontinued materials from search results.

Some of the values displayed above may have been converted from their original units and/or rounded in order to display the information in a consistent format. Users requiring more precise data for scientific or engineering calculations can click on the property value to see the original value as well as raw conversions to equivalent units. We advise that you only use the original value or one of its raw conversions in your calculations to minimize rounding error. We also ask that you refer to MatWeb's terms of use regarding this information. Click here to view all the property values for this datasheet as they were originally entered into MatWeb.
