o6 tool steel Round Bar Stock

o6 ToolSteelis preferred over others when exact dimensional requirements are required.

o6 ToolSteel

O-6 is a graphitic tool steel that hardens in oil and has exceptional resistance to metal-to-metal sliding wear and galling.

It is used in a variety of applications. Because the steel contains a uniform dispersion of graphite particles, the steel has outstanding machining characteristics as well as non-seizing qualities.

In a dry environment, the graphite particles make the steel self-lubricating, and in a lubricated setting, the graphite particles aid in the retention of oil.

O-6 is typically purchased to meet chemical requirements rather than physical requirements. As a result, physical attributes are not provided unless requested explicitly before manufacturing.

Machinability and other Processes

O6 Tool steel has a microstructure that contains free graphite. This dramatically improves its machinability and wear resistance. Its machinability has been significantly improved due to the presence of free graphite. This is why this is preferred over others when required for exact dimensional requirements.

Applications

Stamps, gammers, shear blades, forming rolls, punches, dies, thread gauses, and bushings are only a few of the many applications of o6  tool steel.
