Cold work tool steels are high carbon steels containing smaller amounts of manganese, tungsten, molybdenum, and chromium. These are steels used to cut or form materials that are at low temperatures. They have good dimensional stability, hardenability & wear resistance, and average toughness and heat softening resistance.
They are further classified into three subgroups:
- Air-hardening steels (A series)
- High-carbon, high-chromium steels (D series)
- Oil- hardening steels (O series)
