Bohler-Uddeholm UDDEHOLM Caldie Plastic Mold Tool Steel
Categories: Metal; Ferrous Metal; Tool Steel; Mold Steel

Material Notes: Description: Uddeholm Caldie is a chromium-molybdenumvanadium alloyed tool steel.
    Uddeholm Caldie which is characterized by:
  • Very good chipping and cracking resistance
  • Good wear resistance
  • High hardness (>60 HRC) after high temperature tempering
  • Good dimensional stability in heat treatment and in service
  • Excellent through-hardening properties
  • Good machinability and grindability
  • Excellent polishability
  • Good surface treatment properties
  • Good resistance to tempering back
  • Very good WEDM properties
Applications: Uddeholm Caldie is suitable for short to medium run tooling where chipping and/or cracking are the predominant failure mechanisms and where a high compressive strength (hardness of over 60 HRC) is necessary. This makes Uddeholm Caldie an excellent problem solver for severe cold work applications where the combination of a hardness above 60 HRC and a high cracking resistance is of utmost importance e.g. as in the blanking and forming of ultra high strength steel sheets. Uddeholm Caldie is also very suitable as a substrate steel for applications where surface coatings are desirable or necessary
    Cold Work Applications:
  • Blanking applications where high ductility and toughness are needed to prevent chipping/cracking
  • Cold forging and forming operations where a high compressive strength combined with good resistance to chipping/cracking are necessary
  • Machine knives
  • Thread rolling dies
  • Substrate for surface coatings
