ISOTROP

Hot work tool steel for die casting dies

ISOTROP is a hot work tool steel, developed by Industeel to offer a cost efficient alternative to ESR grades in the die casting die industry.

ISOTROP is produced through a unique and original solidification process developed by Industeel ensuring a good structural homogeneity of forged blocks.

It exhibits improved properties such as a very high level of toughness and high resistance to heat checking. It is very well adapted to ensure extended life time of aluminium or magnesium die casting dies: long production runs, pressure casting, water cooled elements…

ISOTROP meets most International technical standards governing die casting applications.
