H-11 and H11 AMS 6487 Tool Steel

The forming characteristics of H-11 H11 AMS 6487 Tool Steel are good by conventional methods. It also may be formed by forging and machining. Welding H-11 AMS 6487 Tool Steel is a readily wieldable alloy by conventional methods. Cold working may readily be accomplished on H11 by conventional methods. Tool steel refers to a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are particularly well-suited to be made into tools. Their suitability comes from their distinct toughness, resistance to abrasion, their ability to hold a cutting edge and/or their resistance to deformation at elevated temperature.

HP9-4-20 HP 9-4-20 AMS 6525

There are many properties available for HP9-4-20 HP 9-4-20 AMS 6525 and AF-1410 depending on the heat treatment. HP 9-4-20 typically has Yield Strength (YS) of 200-205ksi. Obviously this is under the minimum value of 235ksi, however, there are other properties that have desirable values such as Charpy Impact Toughness (CIT) of 84ft-lbs and elongation values of 14 to 18%. The YS value can be driven up approaching 235ksi; however, the fracture toughness value falls off quickly. This is the game that must be played, optimization of YS and FIT at the same time.
