CTS® XHP

CTS® XHP alloy is a powder metallurgy, air-hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion-resistant alloy. It can be considered either a high hardness 440C stainless steel or a corrosion-resistant D2 tool steel. CTS® XHP alloy possesses corrosion resistance equivalent to 440C stainless steel and can attain a maximum hardness of 64 HRC and a minimum hardness of 60 HRC when air cooled from hardening temperatures of 1850 to 2000°F (1010°C to 1093°C), making it more forgiving during heat treatment than similar alloys.
