C45U TOOL STEEL ECONOMIZER

Pre-machined, C45U tool steel with machining allowance. Both bar ends saw cut.

C45U (1.1730) is a non-alloy cold-work tool steel that offers reasonable tensile strength. C45U can be used for components that need good machinability and wear resistance but do not justify the additional costs of an alloyed tool steel. C45U can be hardened and tempered to produce good surface hardness with moderate wear resistance properties.
