This is a grade produced for high toughness applications.
Z-Wear PM is powder metallurgy tool steel intended to provide high value and exceptional versatility. It offers wear resistance superior to standard A2 and D2 grades along with high toughness and resistance to chipping.
This unique combination of properties allows consistent and reliable tool performance in a broad range of cold work applications. Z-Wear is designed to be "user friendly" and exhibits excellent machinability, heat treat response (up to HRc 64), and grindability. It maintains a high degree of dimensional stability and can serve as an ideal substrate for a variety of common tool coatings and surface treatments.
Z-Wear PM is available at Eastern Tool Steel Service in a wide range of sizes in both rounds and flats.
