Bohler-Uddeholm UDDEHOLM VANADIS 6 Cold Work Tool Steel
Categories: Metal; Ferrous Metal; Alloy Steel; Chrome-moly Steel; Tool Steel; Hot Work Steel

Material Notes: Description: Chromium-molybdenum-vanadium alloyed PM steel. Toolmaking with highly alloyed tool steel means that machining and heat treatment have to be considered more than with lower alloyed grades. This can, of course, raise the cost of toolmaking. Due to the very carefully balanced alloying and the powder metallurgical manufacturing route, Uddeholm Vanadis 6 has a similar hardening procedure as the common cold work tool steel. In order to reduce the amount of retained austenite and to optimize the abrasive wear resistance high temperature tempering is recommended. One very big advantage with Uddeholm Vanadis 6 is that the dimensional stability after hardening and tempering is much better than for conventionally produced cold work steel and HSS used for cold work. This also means that Uddeholm Vanadis 6 is a tool steel which is very suitable for CVD and PVD coating

Vanadis 6 is characterized by:

  • Very high abrasive-adhesive wear resistance
  • High compressive strength
  • Good toughness
  • Very good dimensional stability at heat treatment and in service
  • Very good through-hardening properties
  • Good resistance to tempering back
  • High cleanliness
