DIN 1.2083/X40Cr14 Steel is not only the Cr series of German plastic mold steel, but also one of the representative steel grades of martensitic stainless steel, especially its Cr content is as high as 13%.DIN 1.2083 steel has excellent wear resistance, good acid resistance, good polishing performance, and good workability.
After quenching, it is more wear-resistant, not only suitable for electro-erosion operation, but also suitable for acidic plastics and molds that require good polishing.
DIN1.2083 steel ingots are usually smelted with ESR technology, and the products are usually delivered in an annealed condition.

DIN 1.2083 STEEL HEAT TREATMENT
The general annealing temperature is 780-800℃ with heat preservation 4-6 hours.With cooling ratw below50℃/h, cooled to 550℃,then air-cooling.
Isothermal annealing adopts temperature 700-800℃ to keep for 2-4 hours, and then 670-720℃ to keep for 2-4 hours, cooling at a cooling rate of ≤50℃/h to 500℃, finally air cooling.
The Annealing Hardness will be below 241HBW.
- Quenching & Tempering
Tempering Temperature:200-300℃,Cooling in still air
DIN 1.2083 STEEL APPLICATIONS
As a martensitic stainless steel, DIN 1.2083 steel is mainly used to make surgical medical appliances, bearings, valves, springs and high-strength molds due to its excellent performance.
