Product Description
Finkl PRESS-DIE is a precipitation hardening die steel designed specifically to resist thermal shock and to provide excellent wear resistance at elevated temperatures.

Finkl PRESS-DIE performs best on presses and upsetting and punching machines where longer dwell times between the dies and the hot forging stock are usual. It is not recommended for impact forging equipment. Finkl PRESS-DIE steel is forged utilizing wide die techniques which result in improved properties throughout. Finkl PRESS-DIE is 100% ultrasonically tested according to the most rigorous standards and is fully warranted.

A distinctive advantage of PRESS-DIE is its ability to increase its "as-quenched" hardness by the application of heat either by a tempering treatment or from the hot metal being worked. This process takes place through the metallurgical phenomenon of precipitation hardening and accounts in great measure for the excellent resistance to abrasion at hot-working temperatures. Where subsequent heating softens a conventional die steel, PRESS-DIE hardens to approximately 461 Brinell (48 HRc).
