PowderRange® H13

PowderRange® H13 is a versatile air hardening, 5% chromium hot work steel. It exhibits a good combination of high toughness, temper resistance, and thermal fatigue resistance. PowderRange® H13 has challenging weldability in laser and electron-beam additive manufacturing processes, where part geometry and build parameters could induce micro-cracking.
