Hardens by heat treatment and quenching. Do Not forge below F.

ASTM A600 T5 High Speed Tool Steel Round Bar

The maximum Brinell hardness and minimum Rockwell C hardness for the tool steels are given. Unless otherwise specified, material shall be made by an electric melting process. A chemical analysis of each heat of steel shall be made to determine the percentage of the elements specified including carbon, w600, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, chromium, vanadium, tungsten, molybdenum, and cobalt and these values shall conform to the requirements as to the prescribed chemical composition.

See “Forging” and consult the supplier for information on working at lower temperatures.

M2 is classified as a “medium” machinability tool steel in the annealed condition. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Astk at F and slow furnace cool at 40 F per hour, or less. Formed by machining or forging and then asgm. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.


ASTM A – 92A() – Standard Specification for Tool Steel High Speed

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Preheat at F before heating for hardening. It may be shaped by grinding but is relatively poor in regard to capability of being ground. Selection will depend upon design, service conditions, and mechanical properties. Then heat rapidly from F to F and hold for 3 to 5 minutes followed by quenching in oil, air or salt bath.

Modulus of Elasticity Tension. Not applicable to this alloy. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

Consult the alloy supplier for information on the advisability of welding. Temper at F atm a hardness of Rockwell C 60 to It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. See “Heat Treatment” and “Tempering”.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. The M2 alloy has somewhat better wear resistance than M1.


Two intermediate high speed tool steels designated as M50 and M52 are also covered. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Cold working may be accomplished with the alloy in the annealed condition. Distributors will offer small quantity buys aatm mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks a6600 on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Bar Products by 28 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Flat Rolled Products, Wire Products, and Shapes. Primarily used for cutting tools.

Forge at F down to F.
