D2 tool steel is supplied in round bar, plate, sheet and block which can be bandsaw cut to your requirements. A high carbon high chromium tool steel grade offering very high wear resistance and toughness. D2 tool steel hardens in air with a low order of movement and offers a measure of corrosion resistance when polished. Commonly used for tools operating under conditions of severe wear and abrasion or as an alternative to oil hardening tool steel grades when long runs are required.Al Hilal Engineering Equipment Est supplies D2 tool steel in round bar, plate, sheet and block in UAE. We are premier suppliers of D2 and D3 Tool Steel in UAE. We are an established name amidst the D2 and D3 Tool Steel In UAE.
A popular grade for toolmakers, D2 is used in a wide variety of tool making applications. Typical applications include blanking dies and punches for sheet in stainless steel, brass, copper, zinc and hard abrasive materials generally. Other application includes deep drawing dies, cupping dies, forming dies, sheet metal forming rolls, shear blades for strip and sheet including flying shears, circular cutters for cold rolled strip, trimmer dies, thread rolling dies, cold extrusion dies, broaches, plug gauges, ring gauges, special taps, straybolt taps, brick and tile mould liners, master hobs for cold hobbing plastic moulds and cut moulds for plastics.
A high carbon high chromium steel noted for its resistance to abrasion, it offers excellent dimensional stability in hardening. After heat treatment D3 is hard, durable and dense, and is immune from sinking in use. It offers a measure of corrosion resistance when polished. In general, the applications of D3 tool steel resemble those of D2 but it should be remembered that D3 has better wear resistance of the two steels and is preferred for such items as shear blades. Owing to its higher wear resistance, D3 tool steel is slightly more difficult to grind than D2.
D3 is suitable for applications such as complex blanking and forming tools for long runs and for hard and abrasive materials. It is commonly used for other applications such as brick and tile mould liners, master hobs for cold hobbing plastic moulds, tabletting punches and sleeves for corrosive powders.
