PM A11 high-speed tool steel is a versatile tool and die steel which provides extremely high wear-resistance in combination with relatively high impact toughness. A large volume of hard vanadium carbides provides the high wear-resistance. PM A11 offers substantially better wear-resistance than the high-carbon, high-chromium die steels such as D2 and D7. Many advantages we see when using this steel in cold work tooling applications are ease of grinding, improved response to heat treatments and cost effectiveness.
