See “Forging” and consult the supplier for information on working at lower temperatures. Modulus of Elasticity Tension. Do Not forge below F. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. A chemical analysis of each a00 of steel shall be made to determine the percentage of the elements specified including carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, chromium, vanadium, tungsten, molybdenum, and cobalt and these values shall conform to the requirements as to the astj chemical composition.

Then heat rapidly from F to F and hold for 3 to 5 minutes followed by quenching in oil, air or salt bath.

Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Ashm Products by 28 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Flat Rolled Products, Wire Products, and Shapes. Temper at F for a hardness of Rockwell C 60 to The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.


The M2 alloy has somewhat better wear resistance than M1.

A60 at F and slow furnace cool at 40 F per hour, or less. Selection will depend upon design, service conditions, and mechanical properties. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Formed by machining or forging and then machining. The maximum Brinell hardness and minimum Rockwell C hardness for the tool steels are given.

Consult the alloy supplier for information on the advisability of welding. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but a6000 not provided as part of the standard.

It may be shaped by grinding but is relatively poor in regard to capability of being ground. Asm “Heat Treatment” and “Tempering”. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.


Hardens by heat treatment and quenching. Primarily used for cutting tools. Cold working may be accomplished with the alloy in the annealed condition. Unless otherwise specified, material shall be made by an electric melting process.

Forge at F down to F. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

M2 is classified as a “medium” machinability tool steel in the annealed condition. Preheat at F before heating for hardening. Not applicable to this alloy. Two intermediate high speed tool steels designated as M50 and M52 are also covered.
