L6 Tool Steel

Composition (Nominal)
0.70 C, 0.60 Mn, 0.25 Si, 0.70 Cr, 1.40 Ni, Bal. Fe

L6 tool steel is a versatile, oil-hardening tool steel that is characterized by very good toughness. L6 tool steel has been used for tools, dies, and machine parts that require a good combination of hardness and toughness. The relatively high nickel content results in an alloy with greater impact toughness compared to the other common oil-hardening grades.

Typical applications have included punches and dies, cold forming tools, and coining dies.
