H-13 hot working air hardening tool steel. A favorite of blacksmith's around the world for its ability to take the heat and keep performing and resisting deformation . Ideal for punches, chisels and hot slitting tools. Available in 3/4"(20mm) round and sold in 12"(30cm) increments .
AISI H-13 Tool Steel - a 5% chromium hot work tool steel designed for applications that require extreme toughness combined with good red-hardness. H13 will allow an extra margin of safety in tools subject to heavy hammer blows, and those containing deep recesses or sharp corners. Although H13 was designed as a hot work steel, it has solved many cold work applications where extra toughness could be gained with some sacrifice of wear resistance.
H-13 is typically bought to meet chemistry requirements rather than physical requirements. For that reason, physical properties are generally not provided unless requested prior to production. Any material can be sent to a third party after production to be tested for physical properties.
