PM 23 high-speed tool steel is a high alloyed powder metallurgical high-speed steel corresponding to AISI M3:2. This steel is an ASP 2023 equivalent and has a very good abrasive wear-resistance in combination with a high compressive strength. It is suitable for demanding cold work applications like blanking of harder materials such as carbon steel or cold rolled strip steel, and for cutting tools. Its machinability and grindability are superior than that of conventional high-speed steel, along with its dimensional stability after heat treatment has been applied.
