Gateway Metals D2 is an air hardening alloy steel which provides exceptional wear resistance with medium toughness, ease of heat treatment, and minimum distortion. Special melting and refining practices are utilized to produce a uniform product with high cleanliness and minimum segregation. The material is tested to rigorous tool steel standards to ensure uniformity of structure and freedom of defects. This makes Gateway Metals D2 suitable for use in cold work tooling applications requiring maximum wear resistance such as thread roll dies, punches, blanking dies, shears, and forming dies.
