S1 Tool Steel Supplier
S1 (1.2550) is an impact resisting, oil hardening tool steel for cold and hot work applications, with very good toughness, dimensionally stable, high and deep hardening capacity, allowing many regrinds. It is suited for use where high resistance to impact and cross stresses is required i.e. the majority of battering & shock tools.
Cold shear knives, paper & wood cutting knives, cutting tools for plates up to 10mm, ejector pins, heavy duty punches, coining tools, pneumatic hammers & chisels
Whilst S1 is a great all-round tool steel, the metallurgy of tool steels is complex, so if you need any help determining the best steel for a given application, please get in touch with details of your intended usage. There may well be a new specially developed next generation tool steel that will perform even better for your required application.
S1 tool steel from AKM Steels is supplied soft annealed to max. 229 HB. Rounds can be bandsaw cut to your requirements and are available from 10mm to 202mm diameter.
