stocks A2 Steel in India and abroad. A2 Steel has greater dimensional stability during heat treatment and high wear resistance and strength (potency). It is primarily utilized in cutting instruments, shear razor sharp edges, rolls, cold pilger mandrels, cold stamping devices, moulds for plastics handling.


A2 Steel is equivalent of DIN 2363 and it provides extreme hardness after heat treatment with great dimensional stability. It is heat treatable and offers hardness in the range of 53-63 HRC.


A2 Steel is mainly used for cutting tools, shear blades, rolls, cold mandrels, moulds for plastics processing, cold stamping tools, blanking tools, trim dies, punch dies, forming dies, stamping dies etc.
