Tool steel has proved its worth time and time again for such tool applications as stamping or extrusion dies, cutting, mould-making or hammers for either personal or industrial use. Certainly, for those seeking tool steel rounds in various sizes and grades, there can be no sounder choice of stockholder than Parkside Steel.
'Tool steel' is the term given to the especially hard and abrasion-resistant steels that lend themselves well to the making of tools. These carbon and alloy steels also resist deformation and are able to hold a cutting edge even at the most elevated temperatures. This makes such steels highly effective for shaping other materials.
As you might expect, a high level of quality is essential in tool steel, which is why it needs to be manufactured in carefully controlled conditions with a carbon content typically between 0.5% and 1.5%. No tool steel stockists take quality as seriously as we do here at Parkside Steel, as signified - among other aspects of our service - by our British Standards Institution (BSI) certification.
