W 1.2312

A prehardened mold steel (300 HB/32 HRC) with improved machinability

Material properties
Prehardened Cr-Mn-Mo steel designed for plastic mold industry, with a specific sulfur addition to improve machinability. Compared to 1.2311 grade, 30% increase in milling speed and 300% increase in drilling speed can be expected.

For which tools, for which plastics
Plastic injection mould cores and cavities, extrusion dies for thermoplastics (PE, PP, PS), thermosetting plastics, transparent melts. Not suitable for polishing requirements.
