Tool Steel

Tool steels have high carbon content (0.5% to 1.5%). Higher carbon content provides higher hardness and strength. These steels are mostly used to make tools and dies. Tool steel contains various amounts of tungsten, cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium to increase the heat and wear resistance and durability of the metal. This makes tool steels very ideal for using as cutting and drilling tools.
