M42 High Speed Steel

UNS T11342

Composition (Nominal)
1.08 C, 0.45 Si, 3.85 Cr, 1.50 W, 9.50 Mo, 1.20 V, 8.00 Co, Bal. Fe

M42 super high speed steel is a premium cobalt high-speed steel with high hardness and superior hot hardness. The alloy has been used successfully for machining high-strength and pre-hardened steels, high-hardness alloys, and the difficult-to-machine, nonferrous superalloys used in the aerospace, oil, and power generation industries.

This steel exhibits excellent wear resistance and hot hardness. The cutting edges on tools have remained sharp and hard in heavy-duty and high-production cutting applications.

Applications have included twist drills, taps, milling cutters, reamers, broaches, saws, knives, and thread rolling dies.
