Tool Steel

Tool steel is essentially a variety of carbon and steel alloys that are used to manufacture different mechanical tools. Tool steel comes in a variety of specification or grades, which indicates the various degrees of mechanical properties it possesses in order to deem it suitable for tool manufacture. This steel has a distinctive hardness, which makes it resistive to abrasion and corrosion. It is toughened to be able to withstand copious amounts of mechanical pressure, which makes it a favourite in metal shaping and metal cutting industry. Tool steel is manufactured in a heavily controlled environment in order to preserve its structural integrity and to achieve its unique properties.
