Tool steel S7
Material type: Metal, Magnetic
Tool steel S7 is a shock-resistant air hardening steel and has exceptional impact properties plus the highest hardenability of shock resisting grades of tool steel. Steel S7 also possesses good softening resistance at high temperatures which gives it hot work capabilities. Since S7 steel hardens in air, it is also safe and stable in heat treatment.
