1.2083 (X42Cr13)1.2083 is a chromium alloyed stainless plastic mould steel, which is characterised by good polishability, good hardenability giving high hardness, with fair corrosion resistance
Pre heat to 600-700°C until heated through. Continue heating to the final hardening temperature of 980-1050 °C and allow the component to be heated through. Protect against decarburisation by using neutral salt bath, controlled atmosphere furnace or vacuum. Air cool or quench in oil.
Grade Applications 1.2738 Plastic moulds and pressure die casting moulds, extrusion press moulds. 1.2083 In moulds which have a chemical effect with corrosion effect. 1.2316 Resistant to corrosion with its stainless feature. It performs well in PVC and similar moulds. 1.2312 Holder for plastic moulds, plastic and rubber moulds with low requirements of polishability.
