Ameralloy-60 is an air hardening, cold work
die steel that shows less distortion during
heat treatment than water or oil hardening
steels, and most high alloy air hardening die
steels. A 6-inch cube of Ameralloy-60 will
harden to Rockwell C 60 in still air. A major
advantage is its low hardening temperature
range of 1500°–1600°F, usually available only
with oil hardening steels.
The minimum distortion characteristics of Ameralloy-60 make it perfectly suited for dies and punches in blanking and forming operations, or for tools where close size tolerance is critical.
