Modified SKD11 Hot Rolled Annealed Cold Work Tool Steel Round Bar
DC53 is a new type of cold work die steel for the improvement of
SKD11 by Daido Special Steel of Japan. It overcomes the weakness of
SKD11 high temperature tempering hardness and toughness, and will
completely replace SKD11 high strength and toughness general cold
work die steel in the field of general and precision molds.
- Higher hardness (62-64 HRc) than D2 after heat treatment.
- Twice the toughness of D2 with superior wear resistance.
- Substantially higher fatigue strength compared to D2.
- Smaller primary carbides than D2 protect the die from chipping and
- Secondary refining process (DLF) reduces impurities.
- Machines and grinds up to 40% faster than D2.
- Less residual stress after wire EDMing.
DC53 is only as good as the heat treatment it receives. The heat
treat process can be broken down into two segments, Hardening &
Tempering. DC53 is typically air hardened using a vacuum furnace
however it can also be processed by using a gas or electric furnace
with or without a controlled atmosphere when wrapped in stainless
foil or salt bath hardened by immersing the part in high
