Martensitic stainless steel with a high hardenability, good polishing properties, excellent resistance to corrosion and rust.
Its applications are plastic moulds, high wear resistance cavities particularly for processing of acid aggressive plastics (i.e. acetate and PVC), or plastics containing abrasive fillers. Suited for the manufacture of transparent plastics such as moulds for optical and medical products.
