Plastic Mold Steels

S-Star

Heat Treatment:

Hardened-Tempered Hardness

Maximum hardness of 53HRC is obtained.

 

Quenching

 

Tempering

Double tempering is recommended for both low and high temperature tempering.

Notes:

  • For hyigher corrosion resistance, tempering should be carried out at temperatures of 400°C or lower.
  • To prevent cracking in EDM, tempering is recommended at 490 to 510°C
  • When aging dimensional stability is deemed important, carry out low temperature tempering at 200 to 400°C or sub-zero processing.

 

Dimensional Change

Dimensional change is the smallest by tempering about 300°C
