Hello everyone.

We are or seem to be having trouble with the Asa gas plugging up the pores.

Why is hardenability so important? Does that mean higher hardness in my die?

The NADCA GradeC high Moly grades have higher hot tensile than H11 or H13, resist heat check  better than H11 or H13. Why does anyone use grades B,D,E,or F?

  H13 double melted?
Posted by: bcast - 12-22-2014, 10:34 PM - Forum: H13 - Replies (1)

I always specify premium H13 for my dies. My understanding has been this means it is double melted. I recently started working with a new die shop who says that is not the case. Is he correct?

When I nitride my dies, they tend to crack sooner, so I have stopped having them nitrided. Am I making a mistake?
