Amera-Graf is a medium alloy 1.45 carbon oil-hardening tool steel. In its annealed condition, about one-third of the carbon is present as graphitic carbon. The remainder is present as combined carbon in the form of carbides. In this condition, Amera-Graf is the most readily machinable of the oil hardening tool grades.
Forming, shaping, and drawing dies. Suitable for a great variety of cold-work dies calling for physical properties, wear resistance, and edge holding similar to standard oil hardening tool steels like Type 01. Non-galling, self-lubricating characteristics of Amera-Graf make it well suited for dies subject to galling and seizing
Resulting Rockwell C hardness obtained from samples oil-quenched from 1475°F and tempered at various temperatures:
|Tempering Temperature (°F)||Rockwell C|
ROUNDS: Lengths precut to any size desired, or 10’–12’ R/L lengths. FLATS & SQUARES: Standard 8’–10’ R/L lengths. Wider widths and non-standards available upon request. Prompt forging service available.
