GB Cr12

Profile

This page is mainly introduced the Cr12 chemical information,mechanical properties, physical properties, mechanical properties, heat treatment, and Micro structure, etc. It also contains the use of Cr12,such as it is commonly used in bars, sheet,plates, steel coils, steel pipes,forged and other materials application.
Wide application of cold working die steel with high strength, hardenability and abrasion resistance, quenching deformation;But the impact toughness is poorer, brittle crack, easy to form the uneven eutectic carbides, poor thermal conductivity and high temperature plastic also
