This series of TOOLOX materials is a new type of pre-hardened tool steel with high toughness, high wear resistance and basically no internal stress. And the purity is very high, the grain size is small, the content of S and P is very small, the content of precipitated carbide is very small, and it is very uniform. Due to the special composition design, this series of TOOLOX materials have excellent surface treatment performance. The surface hardness of TOOLOX44 after nitridation can reach HRC65, TOOLOX can reach 40, the surface hardness can reach HRC62 or above, and the surface hardness of TOOLOX33 can reach HRC58 or above, and the depth is up to 1.8mm.​​

The above characteristics of TOOLOX series materials make TOOLOX series materials have special advantages in some stamping dies:

1. stamping and forming dies for thicker steel plates (a typical case of punching and shearing thickness of 35mm), stainless steel plates, and non-ferrous metal plates, typically air-conditioning fin dies.

2. Drawing die, stainless steel drawing die.

3. Cold extrusion die, cold extrusion 304 stainless steel, thickness above 0.5mm, replace DC53 and other materials, the effect is very good.​​

4. Large stamping templates that require high dimensional stability.
