NOVELTY: Uddeholm Vanadis 8 SuperClean

Pioneers in the research and development of tool steels and powder metallurgical steels, our company has sought to respond to market needs by innovation in the solutions it offers. In this way there is another steel with unique properties that meets the needs of both manufacturers and tool users. The Uddeholm Vanadis 8 SuperClean is a cold-working metallurgical steel that offers a set of features that stand out as a solution that enables tool manufacturers to guarantee their customers the opportunity to save on cost-effectiveness and time-to-production. We know that excellent wear resistance is usually associated with low tenacity and vice versa, however, in some applications and for better tool performance both conditions are essential. Also during the manufacture of the tool, one of the dilemmas that exists when working hard alloy steels is the difficulty in machining and the heat treatment. This fact can increase delivery times as well as the cost of manufacturing the tool. Thus Uddeholm Vanadis 8 SuperClean, due to the careful balance of the alloying elements and to the pulverometallurgical process itself, as well as its high wear resistance in combination with good toughness, provides good responsiveness for both manufacturers and users. Noteworthy is the dimensional stability after heat treatment when compared to high performance steels produced by conventional methods. This feature also means that this new material is a good foundation for surface coatings.  It is a steel with an excellent combination of high resistance to abrasive wear and good toughness, being an interesting alternative to tools executed in carburizing steels, hard metal or high-speed steels that have a tendency to fragment or fracture.  Uddeolm Vanadis 8 SuperClean, with the quality recognized by Uddeholm, is the most suitable solution for long distances, leaving all the other options behind.
