HKB Steel Services adds D2 tool steel to its portfolio

30 August 2011

HKB Steel Services has added D2 tool steel to its product portfolio, offering high resistance against abrasive wear, good dimensional stability and high compressive strength. The new product is available in 2,000mm to 3,000mm lengths and in diameters from 51mm to 303mm. D2 tool steel’s abrasion resistance lies in the high volume of hard carbides in its chemical composition, which includes high carbon, high chromium, molybdenum and vanadium.

D2 is fully machinable in the annealed condition and is also fully heat treatable. It will offer a hardness range of 55-65 HRc with very little distortion, along with mild corrosion-resisting properties due to its high chromium content.

HKB also provides cutting services using the latest TSUNE carbide saws and computer controlled band-saws. A single cut, same day service is offered, as are multi-cut items from 6mm to 650mm in diameter.

All engineering steels are fully cast traceable and are supplied by the market’s leading producers world wide.
