1.2550 tool steel suppliers and stockholders delivering to the whole of the UK. West Yorkshire Steel are stockholders and suppliers of grade 1.2550 in round bar. As a shock resisting steel it is suited for both hot and cold work applications. The tungsten content of this steel grade confers fatigue resistance, the chromium content provides depth of hardness and resistance to abrasion. It is suitable for cold work tools subject to heavy shock. 1.2550 is also used with great success for chisels and punches required for heavy work on hard and tough materials. Suitable for hot work applications where high fatigue strength with medium hot hardness is desirable. Tools made from this grade can be water cooled in service with minimal risk of cracking.
