YXR 33 is a newly developed Matrix Steel that provides better toughness and wear characteristics than typical tool steel alloys. Customers will achieve extended tool life, especially on projects where conventional tool steels are failing. YXR33 offers a refined grain structure which allows for a better fatigue strength.
YXR33 is ideal for stamping HSLA working material, high impact cold work application, and excellent in die casting components that are exposed to critical erosion wear.
This grade is an excellent combination of toughness and wear and a great alternative to alloys like S-7 and D-2 where ductility is needed to prevent cracking or chipping.
