Ready to use
Toolox® comes prehardened and ready to use upon delivery, with measured and guaranteed properties.
If you're a machinist or tool and die maker, you probably want to avoid expensive, time-consuming and risky heat treatments on your tooling without compromising tool longevity or steel quality. And when faced with tooling repair, wouldn't it be nice to have tool steel handy to quickly create a replacement tool — in just a few hours — that can withstand the rigors of the job?
Toolox® helps solve these challenges. Delivered prehardened and ready to use, it eliminates the need for heat treatment and adjustments and helps you save time and money. It possesses a low-carbon profile, much like SSAB’s other products Hardox® and Strenx®, helping to impart a toughness and ease of machinability.
Toolox® is ready to go so you can finish-machine your tools and get back to business.
- Available in 3 hardness levels: Toolox® 33 at 300 HBW, Toolox® 40 at 390 HBW and Toolox® 44 at 450 HBW/45 HRC.
- Tough. Due to a low-carbon profile and very high cooling rate, Toolox® steel is 2-3 times tougher than comparable steels of similar hardness.
- Wear and crack resistant. Its excellent fatigue and toughness properties dramatically increase the lifespan of your tool or machine components and deliver good crack resistance. And the ultra-high cleanliness of Toolox® means cracks will first be seen on the surface.
- Highly thermally conductive. Toolox® maintains high strength and toughness at elevated temperatures, even with extended contact times. This means shorter cooling times and a longer tool life.
