w1 ToolSteel Round Bar Stock

W1 toolsteel has carbon as its alloying ingredient.

w1 ToolSteel

W1 tool steel is a water-hardening tool steel that belongs to the group of steels known as group W steels.

W1, W2, and W3 are the three varieties that fall into this category. When it comes to group W steels, carbon is by far the most common alloying ingredient. Also contained within the steel is a trace amount of chromium, which can be used to improve the resistance and hardenability of W steels. The addition of vanadium, which increases the toughness of the steel, helps maintain the steel’s grain size.

Machinability and other Processes

W1 steel is one of the most commonly used water-hardening tool steel grades, and it can be hardened quickly by heating and quenching in water. Although this alloy does not experience distortion during quenching, it does share some distortion during the process.

Applications

Stamping, slitting, cutting vinyl window frames, dies and pipes are some of the many applications of W1 toolSteel.
