Uddeholm Vanax SuperClean

Uddeholm Vanax SuperClean is the long-awaited response to the market’s need for steel that is both strong and stainless. Combining the corrosion resistance of austenitic stainless steel such as AISI 316L, with a hardness of 60 HRC and the wear resistance of a cold work tool steel, opens up new opportunities. Where no previous materials suffice, this powder metallurgical steel grade offers resistance in the most corrosive environments possible. From start to finish, its unique material properties provide reliable performance in the most extreme conditions and for the most demanding working materials.

Uddeholm Vanadis 60

Uddeholm Vanadis 60 SuperClean is a high alloyed powder metallurgical
high speed steel suitable for very demanding cold work applications and
for cutting tools. The high carbon and alloying content, Co, Mo, W and V,
gives an extremely high compressive strength, 69 HRC, combined with a
very good abrasive wear resistance.
For cutting tool applications Uddeholm Vanadis 60 SuperClean offers a
unique combination of high wear resistance, hot hardness and good
toughness compared to all other HSS.
The P/M process ensures a good machinability and grindability together
with a good dimensional stability during heat treatment.
