ASSAB XW-10

AN ALL PURPOSE TOOL STEEL FOR MEDIUM RUN COLD WORK APPLICATIONS

ASSAB XW-10 is a medium alloyed tool steel with a good resistance to both the abrasive and adhesive types of wear as well as good resistance to cracking. This combination makes ASSAB XW-10 an all purpose tool steel for medium run cold work applications.

  • Short tool making lead times
  • Safe and consistent production
  • Good tooling economy for short and medium run tooling

Benefits

  • ASSAB XW-10 is a tool steel offering good tooling economy for short and medium run tooling when the cost of making the tool is a significant portion of the total cost for producing the required number of parts
  • ASSAB XW-10 is a medium alloyed cold work tool steel with a very good balance between tool performance properties and tool making properties
  • ASSAB XW-10 has a good hardenability and can therefore be used for larger short and medium run tools
  • Medium wear resistance (mixed type of wear profile)
  • High hardness and compressive strength
  • Good hardenability
  • Good machinability and grind-ability
  • Good resistance to chipping and cracking
