Stainless Steel P5

Mold steels are designated as group P steels according to the AISI classification system.These steels consist of one medium carbon steel and all low­ carbon P­ series tool steel ssuch as P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, P20, and P21 type steels. Two major elements present in the mold steels are nickel and chromium. All the other P­ series steels, except P4 and P21, have low resistance to softening at high temperatures, while P21 and P4 have medium softening resistance. These low­ carbon mold steels are subjected to deep hardening.
