Pre-hardened Sulphur alloyed plastic mold steel with excellent machinability, also in hardened and tempered condition, thanks to the Manganese-sulfide.
The main application is for core-parts and underbodies of plastic moulds also in large sizes; steel not to be used for polishing and texturing.
It is also used for plates, mould frames, die boxes. It is suitable for nitriding (around 800 HV).
