Free Machining Holder Steel

P1-FM™ is a prehardened alloy steel from EDRO Engineering (Walnut, CA) that features excellent machinability, uniformity and consistence, hardness in all dimensions, good resistance to indentation (compressive strength), excellent ductility, excellent flatness, dimensional stability, smooth as rolled surfaces, weldable, and excellent thermal conductivity.

P1-FM™ is a prehardened alloy steel from EDRO Engineering (Walnut, CA) that features excellent machinability, uniformity and consistence, hardness in all dimensions, good resistance to indentation (compressive strength), excellent ductility, excellent flatness, dimensional stability, smooth as rolled surfaces, weldable, and excellent thermal conductivity. The steel is an improved grade designed specifically for plastic and rubber molding applications. Chemical composition and thermal treatments provide physical properties and microstructures designed to provide: reduced mold maintenance costs, safe weld repair, dimensional stability, lower mold production costs due to less cutting tool wear and increased cutting speeds. Applications include plastic and rubber molds, plastic mold bases, constructional parts and plastic extrusion. The steel is provided prehardened to approximately 293 Brinell.
