TGE-23 is a high performance hot work steel which offers a very good resistance to heat checking, cracking, hot wear and plastic deformation.
Smelting method : EAF+LF+VD+ESR+VMR
Main Characteristics : High ductility, high thermal fatigue resistance, high thermal erosion resistance, high isotropic property, high purity and small heat treatment distortion.
Major Applications : Mainly used for processing of light alloy - metal pipes, rods, extruded carrier rods, molds, and extruded molds, etc.
Pressure casting equipment, molded trimming die, compression moulding inserts, etc.
Hot shearing blades, plastic molds, etc.
Equivalent Grade from UDDEHOLM / DIEVAR
